Summary
"This report looks at a range of measures of children's economic well-being, including family income and access to basic goods such as housing and health care. The report also examines the determinants of children's economic well-being in Canada, the United States, and Mexico, using indicators related to social and demographic trends, to labor markets and family income, and to the scope of public resources available to improve the economic security of families with children. Our findings confirm that there are tremendous disparities in the economic well-being of children across North America, both between and within the three countries. Polarization of opportunity is one of the defining features of the three nations' economies. Even as the national economies recovered from economic crises in the early and mid-1990s and levels of child poverty started to fall, families at the top of the income ladder continued to pull away from the rest and incomes at the bottom stagnated or fell as was the case in Mexico. While the majority of children growing up in the United States and Canada enjoy a level of economic security not available to millions of Mexican children, the pattern of income inequality was common in each country."
