OECD Child Well-Being Portal

The OECD Child Well-Being Portal is a platform for conducting policy-oriented research on children, enhancing child well-being and promoting equal opportunities among children. 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. The Portal also includes the OECD Child Well-Being Data Portal, which gathers data and information from different sources on child well-being outcomes and policies. 


Tackling the Corona virus and protecting vulnerable children

Apart from its immediate public health impacts, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to have wide-reaching economic and social implications for vulnerable groups of population, including children in poverty. The OECD COVID-19 Digital Hub is compiling data, analysis and recommendations on a range of topics to address the emerging health, economic and societal crisis, facilitate co-ordination, and contribute to the necessary global action when confronting this enormous collective challenge. In addition, as a global advocate on child poverty measurement, analysis and response, the Global Coalition to End Child Poverty have opened a COVID-19 and child poverty space to share latest news and updates, high-quality research and knowledge products, tools and resources, webinars and other opportunities with the global community of practice.
Coalition members are working to support global and national efforts to protect the poorest and the most vulnerable families from the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 crisis. Find out how our members and partners are responding to COVID-19.
