Child Poverty and Deprivation in Mali: The first national estimates

Deprivations are defined according to the age of the child. Among the findings it is noted that an increase of USD 1 per person per day would reduce the probability of being deprived by 25 percentage points in rural areas.

Les enfants de la récession : Impact de la crise économique sur le bien-être des enfants dans les pays riches


Le présent rapport propose des points de vue divers et détaillés sur la manière dont la récession a touché les enfants dans les pays développés.

Figli della recessione: L'impatto della crisi economica sul benessere dei bambini nei paesi ricchi


Questo report fornisce prospettive diverse e articolate sugli effetti della recessione sui bambini nel mondo industrializzato. Per valutarne l'impatto sui bambini dei paesi dell'Unione Europea (UE) e/o dell'Organizzazione per la cooperazione e lo sviluppo economico (OCSE) sono stati utilizzati dati ufficiali. In ciascun paese, la portata e la natura dell'impatto della crisi sui bambini sono state influenzate dalla profondità della recessione, dalle condizioni economiche pre-esistenti, dalla solidità della rete di previdenza sociale e, cosa ancor più importante, dalle risposte politiche.



Exploring the Late Impact of the Financial Crisis using Gallup World Poll Data


This paper explores the late impact of the Great Recession by using Gallup World Poll data. This data may be exploited to obtain an indication of what the trends have been up to 2013 for a number of well-being-related indicators in different dimensions. An additional advantage with the World Poll is the more complete country coverage which goes beyond that provided by EU-only databases.



Children of the Recession: The impact of the economic crisis on child well-being in rich countries


This report offers multiple and detailed perspectives on how the recession has affected children in the developed world. Official data have been used to rank the impact on children for countries in the European Union (EU) and/or the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). For each country, the extent and character of the crisis’s impact on children has been shaped by the depth of the recession, pre-existing economic conditions, the strength of the social safety net and, most importantly, policy responses.
