The UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre had just published its latest annual report card. These are a series if publications focussing on the topic of child wellbeing in industrialised countries. The latest report is entitled Children of the Recession, and examines how the ongoing economic crisis has impacted on children. As always, the report is very detailed and paints a complex picture, though the headline claim has been the finding that child poverty has increased in 23 countries since 2008.
The full text of the report is available here. Full access to all of the previous reports in the series is available here.
