This chapter provides the most recent evidence on the variations in child poverty across the industrialised world. It also assesses the contributions of family structure, market incomes, and state transfers to this variation. The chapter provides a brief description of the methods that were used to measure poverty, followed by a section on the ordering of countries by child poverty for the most recent available wave of the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS). Poverty trends that can be estimated via the LIS data and the role of the public sector in affecting the rates of poverty are also discussed.

Keywords:   variations in poverty, child poverty, recent evidence, measuring poverty, ordering of countries, Luxembourg Income Study, poverty rates
