Index of Child Wellbeing in Europe

A new publication by the Child Poverty Action Group shows the relative standing of EU Member States plus Norway and Iceland regarding child wellbeing.

‘Wellbeing’ describes the quality of childhoods as they are lived. Wellbeing draws in the many different factors which affect children’s lives: including material conditions; housing and neighbourhoods; how children feel and do at school; their health; exposure to dangerous risks; and the quality of family and classmate relationships children develop.

The frontrunners are Netherlands, Sweden and Norway. Bulgaria is 26th, but there is some missing data for some of the indicators.
