About the product
The Social Monitor is an annual regional report examining the well-being of children in the transition countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The report finds that millions of children in the region still live in poverty despite economic progress in every country, indicating that economic growth alone does not necessarily improve the lives of children. The report shows that economic growth in the region has rarely been accompanied by initiatives to tackle the serious social disparities affecting children. A statistical annex covering a broad range of indicators and statistical profiles on each country in the region is included.
