Children’s views on their lives and well-being in 15 countries

 

Children are more likely to be happy with their friendships in Europe and more likely to be happy with their school lives in Africa, says a global survey from Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany.

 

This is a report on the second wave of the Children’s Worlds survey. This report presents findings from over 30,000 children aged 10 to 12 from 15 countries across four continents. It provides new comparative insights into the context of children’s lives, how children spend their time and how they feel about their lives. Including their family and home life, friendships, money and possessions, school life, local area, time use, personal mental health and well-being, views on children's rights and their overall happiness.
