As policy interventions for children in OECD countries increasingly overarch traditional policy fields, demand has grown for better comparative information across a range of children's outcomes. Recently demand has grown for meaures that focus on quality of life issues beyond income poverty, and at different points in the child's lifecycle.

The Child Well-being Module (CWBM) is a new dataset for age-specific child well-being information including data on policies, family and community contexts, and outcomes. The CWBM is part of the OECD Family Database, a portal for internationally comparable information on the situation of families in OECD countries. The CWBM holds quality-checked data on children and their family contexts to help inform cross-national and national-level analysis of policies for children, and the outcomes that they achieve. This module draws from indicators available in the OECD Family Database as well as other available internationally comparable data series and surveys.

The CWBM takes the form of a data matrix in which indicators are organised along one axis by the stages of childhood development: early (0-5 years), middle (6-11 years) and late (12-17 years). The second axis collates the indicators on the basis of:

A. Inputs (spending and structures)

B. Context (families, service provition and community)

C. Outcomes
