UNICEF are in the headlines today following the publication of their latest 'Report Card' which examines the well-being of children in industrialised countries. The new publication ranks the UK 16th out of 29 developed countries for overall wellbeing, although it also suggests that children's lives have improved since a similar UNICEF report in 2007.
If you'd like to read the full report, you can do so by clicking here; a summary version containing the key messages is also available. For further reading, you may want to look at this opinion article or the full list of previous UNICEF report cards, while only last week the Office of National Statistics published its own short report: Children's Well-Being, 2013.
