Child poverty in cross-national perspective: Lessons from the Luxembourg Income Study

Janet C. Gornick and Markus Jantti

Children and Youth Services Review, 2012, vol. 34, issue 3, 558-568

Abstract: This paper draws on the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) microdata to paint a portrait of child poverty across a diverse group of countries, as of 2004–2006. We will first synthesize past LIS-based research on child poverty, focusing on studies that aim to explain cross-national variation in child poverty rates. Our empirical sections will focus on child poverty in 20 high- and middle-income countries — including three Latin American countries, newly added to LIS.
