A database associated with the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre’s MONEE (The UNICEF Regional Monitoring Project). The TransMONEE database captures a vast range of data relevant to the social and economic situation and well-being of children, young people and women in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE/CIS). The data, which are updated annually, provide governments, civil society organizations, funding institutions and academia a particularly useful tool to make decisions and to assist in the implementation of policies and programmes and setting up of agendas.
Data sets on children - National and International surveys
Even modest changes in the way data are collected at all levels of development can lead to considerable potential to widen the scope, policy relevance and comparability of research on child well-being. This has been confirmed by UNICEF IRC research (2006, 2007) comparing child well-being in member states of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and within and among countries in CEE/CIS.
IRC research has also shown that there are considerable barriers for researchers to gain access to existing data that could enhance the quality and relevance of their analyses, and that many data sources are under used. Some of the barriers and shortcomings can be overcome through greater awareness of the instruments, their scope and communities, and their processes of access. Click here to read more.
Innocenti Report Card
In keeping with UNICEF's mandate to advocate for children in every country, the Innocenti Centre's Report Card series focuses on the well-being of children in industrialized countries. Each Report Card includes a league table ranking OECD countries according to their record on the subject under discussion. The Report Cards are designed to appeal to a wide audience while maintaining academic rigour.
