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.

Evidence-based Policy Making for Youth Well-being - A Toolkit

Young people are the world’s next generation and a unique asset. If properly nurtured, they can act as engines for economic and social progress. The political will has grown among many national governments to develop comprehensive policy frameworks that better respond to young peoples’ needs and aspirations through national youth policies. This report provides analytical tools and policy guidance, based on rigorous empirical evidence and international good practices, to countries that are developing, implementing or updating their youth policies.

OECD Child Well-Being Data Portal

The OECD Child Well-Being Data Portal brings together selected indicators on children and child well-being spanning children’s home and family environment, their health and safety, their education and school life, their activities and their life satisfaction, plus also selected measures of public policies for families and children. The data cover OECD member countries, plus also partner economies including Brazil and China.
