United Nations News Centre - Growing inequality among children in high income countries, UNICEF reports: Innocenti Report Card 13, Fairness for Children: A league table of inequality in child well-being in rich countries, ranks 41 countries that are part of the European Union and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) according to how far children at the bottom of the distribution fall below their peers in the middle. The report looks at bottom end inequality of income, educational achievement, self-reported health and life satisfaction.

“The Report Card provides a clear reminder that the well-being of children in any country is not an inevitable outcome of individual circumstances or of the level of economic development but is shaped by policy choices,” said Dr. Sarah Cook, Director of the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti, in a press release.

“As our understanding of the long term impact of inequality grows, it becomes increasingly clear that governments must place priority on enhancing the well-being of all children today, and give them the opportunity to achieve their potential,” she added.
