[RESEARCH] Child wellbeing and income inequality in rich societies: ecological cross sectional study: « The overall index of child wellbeing was negatively correlated with income inequality (r=–0.64, P=0.001) and percentage of children in relative poverty (r=–0.67, P=0.001) but not with average income (r=0.15, P=0.50). (…) Among the US states and District of Columbia all indicators were significantly worse in more unequal states. Only teenage birth rates and the proportion of children dropping out of high school were lower in richer states. » (Via BMJ Online First.)
Une autre recherche vient confirmer ce qu’on savait : les inégalités socioéconomiques sont plus corrélées (négativement) au bien-être des enfants que le revenu moyen.
