Anne-Marie Brooks, Sinéad Hanafin


This document includes more than 2,500 indicators from 80 international, national and regional reports on child well-being and outlines the way in which child well-being has been conceptualised across different reports and throughout different countries. The compilation of this Inventory helped to define priorities for the national set of child well-being indicators for Ireland.
