A league table of child poverty in rich nations /

by UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre.

Publisher: Florence, Italy UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre 2000Description: 28 p.Other title: UNICEF Innocenti Report Card ; no. 1.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: This report on child poverty in the world's wealthiest nations concludes that one in six of the rich world's children is poor - a total of 47 million. This report provides the most comprehensive estimates so far of child poverty across the member countries of the OECD. Despite a doubling and redoubling of national incomes in most OECD nations since 1950, a significant percentage of their children are still living in families so materially poor that normal health and growth are at risk. A far larger proportion remain in relative poverty. Their physical needs may be catered for, but they are painfully excluded from the activities and advantages that are considered normal by their peers. The report reveals a wide range of child poverty rates in countries at broadly similar levels of economic development - from under 3 per cent in Sweden to a high of over 22 per cent in the USA. By comparing data from different countries, the new research asks what can be learned about the causes of child poverty and examines the policies that have contributed to the success of lower rates in some countries. In particular, it seeks to explain the situation by exploring the impact on poverty rates of lone parenthood, unemployment, low wages and levels of social expenditures. The Report Card calls for a new commitment to ending child poverty in the world's richest nations.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

A portrait of child poverty in Australia in 1995-96

by Harding, Ann | University of Canberra. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling | Szukalska, Agnieszka.

Publisher: Bruce, A.C.T. National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling, University of Canberra 1998Description: 32 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Paper presented at the 6th Australian Institute of Family Studies Conference, Melbourne, 26 November 1998.Summary: In Australia, as in many other developed countries, there has been growing concern about increasing income inequality and a possible accompanying increase in poverty rates. One of the areas of greatest concern is children and how poverty impacts on their well-being (both mental and physical). In this paper the latest ABS income survey data are used to assess the extent of child poverty in Australia in 1995-96. The analysis suggests that most children in poverty in Australia are in that situation because one or both of their parents is unemployed, a sole parent, self-employed or one of the ‘working poor’.
