EU Sources - Inequality, youth income and well-being - April 30, 2016

UNICEF published the Innocenti Report Card 13. The card presents an overview of inequalities in child well-being in 41 countries of the European Union and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It focuses on ‘bottom-end inequality’ – the gap between children at the bottom and those in the middle – and addresses the question ‘how far behind are children being allowed to fall?’ in income, education, health and life satisfaction. Across the OECD, the risks of poverty have been shifting from the elderly towards youth since the 1980s. The Scandinavian countries, with the exception of (mid-ranking) Sweden, have the smallest relative youth income gaps. Income gaps in excess of 60% are found in Bulgaria and Romania and in the larger southern European countries (Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain).
