Barnfattigdomen i Sverige: Sammanfattning av Barns ekonomiska utsatthet i Sverige. Årsrapport 2010

Summary of Save the Children Sweden's Child Poverty Annual Report 2010 written by Professor Tapio Salonen. The report provides an overview of child poverty trends up to the year 2008 at both the national and local levels, and analyses the financial situation of families with children across the urban areas of major cities. Previous analyses of differences in child poverty between city suburbs have also been included in this report, with special focus being given to children of immigrant parents and children from single parent households. Child poverty is defined on an index combining two factors - low levels of relative income or living with income support (a guaranteed minimum level established by the Swedish Parliament in 1998). Save the Children Sweden has worked to raise awareness of child poverty in Sweden since releasing its first report in 2002 calling for a national action plan to address the issue and combat the growing incidence of child poverty. The studies on child poverty are a first step towards a child index, which would annually reflect changes in various aspects of children’s welfare at the municipal level.
