Child poverty has featured on the agenda of the EU for many years. In 2013, a recommendation on ‘Investing in children: breaking the cycle of disadvantage’ was adopted (European Commission, 2013).
It calls on Member States to ‘reinforce statistical capacity … where needed and feasible, particularly concerning child deprivation’. The best way to provide accurate information on the actual living
conditions of children in the EU, without making assumptions about the sharing of resources within the household, is to develop child-specific deprivation indicators – that is, indicators based on information on the specific situations of children, which may differ from those of their parents. In 2018, the EU made a significant step in this direction by adopting the child-specific deprivation indicator proposed by Guio et al. (2018), using EU-SILC data.
