Abstract: The aim of this article is to understand why the relative monetary poverty in Luxembourg concerns one child in five, proportionally more than in Belgium or in France, although the three countries have quite similar poverty rates for the entire population. First it has to be acknowledged that the generosity and the targeting of the Luxembourgish family and social transfers in force in 2006, very similar to the two other countries, do not allow us to explain the particular situation of Luxembourg. Second, the lack of activity of the parents situated around the poverty threshold explains imperfectly the level of child poverty in Luxembourg. Therefore, we turn towards the analysis of wages inequalities, more important in Luxembourg than in the neighbour countries, to find an explanation to our research question.
