Monitoring Child Well-being in the European Union: Measuring cumulative deprivation

Monitoring Child Well-being in the European Union: Measuring cumulative deprivation

Ratings: (0)|Views: 17 |Likes:
Published by Unicef Innocenti
This paper describes and empirically tests a number of candidate measures of cumulative deprivation to monitor child well-being in the EU.The authors posit that the ideal measure should be sensitive to changes in the depth of cumulative deprivation and, given its broad use in the policy community, has an intuitive interpretation. Using the 2007 wave of the EU-SILC data, the authors constructed several measures of cumulative deprivation from a set of 13 deprivation indicators for Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

The UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre in Florence, Italy, was established in 1988 to strengthenth
e research capability of the United Nations Children‟s Fund and to support its advocacy for 
children worldwide. The Innocenti Research Centre (formally known as the International ChildDevelopment Centre) generates knowledge and analysis to support policy formulation andadvocacy in favour of children; acts as a convener and catalyst for knowledge exchange and
strategic reflections on children‟s concerns; and supports programme development and capacity
-building.Innocenti studies present new knowledge and perspectives on critical issues affecting children,
informing current and future areas of UNICEF‟s work. The Centre‟s publications represent
contributions to a global debate on child rights issues, and include a range of opinions. For thatreason, the Centre may produce publications that do not necessarily reflect UNICEF policies orapproaches on some topics.The Centre collaborates with its host institution in Florence, the Istituto degli Innocenti, inselected areas of work.
