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.

Gaps in data covering refugee, asylum seeker, migrant and internally displaced populations are endangering the lives and wellbeing of millions of children on the move, warned five UN agencies and partners today. In ‘A call to action: Protecting children on the move starts with better data’, UNICEF, UNHCR, IOM, Eurostat and OECD together show how crucial data is to understanding the patterns of global migration and developing policies to support vulnerable groups like children.
