ABSTRACT

This paper examines poverty in recent years among children in the countries of South Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The absolute poverty rate among children is highest where national income in lowest, and where the density of children in the population is highest. The paper analyses two dimensions of child poverty according to household composition and its urban, rural and regional dimensions. The most important findings from a policy point of view are the strong rural character of child poverty, and the relationship between child population density and child poverty.
