Innocenti Working Papers Child Poverty in English-Speaking Countries AUTHOR(S) John Micklewright Published: 2003 Innocenti Working Papers The paper considers child poverty in rich English-speaking countries - the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the U.K. and Ireland. It is sometimes assumed that these countries stand out from other OECD countries for their levels of child poverty. The paper looks at the policies they have adopted to address the problem. 'Poverty' is interpreted broadly and hence the available cross-national evidence on edicational disadvantage and teenage births is considered alongside that on low household income. Discussion of policy initiatives ranges across a number of areas of government activity. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 40 | Thematic area: Child Poverty | Tags: child poverty, comparative analysis, educational policy, poverty, social policy × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION John Micklewright 2003 Child Poverty in English-Speaking Countries. , pp. 40.
