OECD: Doing Better for Children

As improving situation of children one of the priorities of OECD, the organization has issued a publication analyzing different aspects of child-well being in the world today. Issues referred to include extent and timing of governmental expenditure on that purpose, social and family policies that have impact on children, influence of persistent inequality and marginalization on children.

Chapter 2 of the publication presents a child well-being framework and compares outcome indicators for children in OECD countries using six dimensions: material well-being, housing and environment, education, health, risk behaviours, and quality of school life.
In Chapter 7 contains a set of recommendation for improving child well-being policies.
