Child Poverty in Rich Countries 2005.
The proportion of children living in poverty has risen in a majority of the world's developed economies. No matter which of the commonly-used poverty measures is applied, the situation of children is seen to have deteriorated over the last decade. This publication is the sixth in a series of Innocenti Report Cards, designed to monitor and compare the performance of the OECD countries in meeting the needs of their children. It is also the first in what will be an annual Innocenti Report on Child Poverty in Rich Countries.
