Child poverty in English-speaking countries

Micklewright, John (2003) Child poverty in English-speaking countries , Southampton, UK Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute 27pp. (S3RI Applications and Policy Working Papers, (A03/05) ).

Record type: Monograph (Working Paper)


The paper considers child poverty in rich English-speaking countries - the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and Ireland. Do all these countries stand out from other OECD countries for their levels of child poverty, as is sometimes assumed? And what policies have they adopted to address the problem? 'Poverty' is interpreted broadly and hence the available cross-national evidence on educational disadvantage and teenage births is considered alongside that on low household income. Likewise, discussion of policy initiatives ranges across a number of areas of government activity.
