What would happen if children’s well-being was not measured independently? If the unit of measurement used was that of the family or household as opposed to the children within that family or household? What we measure is what we end up defining as success. This can sometimes result in the intricacies of contexts and the diverse needs of different population groups being overlooked.
The multidimensional nature of child well-being requires measures which pick up on the individual components to ensure the effective tracking of progress or regression in particular areas and to allow for effective and targeted responses. There is widespread evidence supporting this argument as well as that of looking beyond monetary poverty and income alone to effectively assess child well-being.
In recent years there has been an explosion of activity with organisations from around the world developing new measures of progress and calling for indicators that look beyond economic growth in measuring wellbeing, including those relevant to children.
