A large body of literature has established socio-economic gradients in adolescent health, but few studies have investigated the extent to which these gradients are associated with very poor health outcomes. The current analysis examined the extent to which the socio-economic background of adolescents relates to very poor self-reported health and well-being (the so-called ’bottom end’).

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.
