The original articles presented in this book represent both a set of analyses of families, peers, schooling, communities and the broader social and economic environment of childhood, and an illustration of how the use of indicators enhances understanding of children’s risks and well-being. Covering a broad range of topics, from the theorizing of children’s well-being to the development of measures at local and national level, the book also outlines pivotal methodological and conceptual issues. A distinguished, international group of researchers provide insights into the dynamics of children’s well-being, using indicators as a means to confront new phenomena as well as to bridge data and theory.

Both because of its perspectives on childhood and children’s well-being and the range of topics covered, this book will be of value to researchers and students of the social sciences, as well as to policymakers and professionals in related fields.
