Last month Unicef released a report entitled Child Poverty in Perspective: An Overview of Child Well-Being in Rich Countries. The organization says it’s the first study of childhood across the world’s industrialized nations.
The report looked at 40 indicators from 2002-2003. Some of those indicators included: Poverty, relationships, and health.
The report’s "Child Well-Being Table" ranked Canada 12 out of 21 countries. The United States came in at the 20th position, while the UK finished at the bottom.
