Foreword -- Executive Summary -- Summary of Key Findings -- Comparative Child Well-being across the OECD -- Social Spending across the Child's Life Cycle -- From Conception to Kindergarten -- Child Well-being and Single Parenthood -- Childhood and Inter-generational Mobility -- Doing Better for Children
This publication constructs and analyzes different indicators of child well-being across the OECD. These indicators cover six key areas: material well-being; housing and environment; education; health and safety; risk behaviors; and quality of school life. They show that no one OECD country performs well in all areas and that every OECD country can do more to improve children's lives. How much countries are spending on children and when is also considered. Additional chapters examine countries' policies for children under age three, the impact of single parenthood on children and the effect of inequalities across generations. The publication concludes with broad policy recommendations for improving child well-being.--Publisher's de
