Exploring concepts of child well-being

Chapters Two to Six have looked in turn at how each of the five concepts of well-being (need, rights, poverty, quality of life, social exclusion) are defined and measured. This chapter explores how far each one makes a unique contribution to the understanding of child well-being. It starts by aiming to get to the heart or essence of each concept. The research drawn on in this chapter lends support to the second general hypothesis explored by the study described in this book. There is overlap between groups of people affected by different conditions, and, without exception, it appears that individuals with condition X are disproportionately likely to exhibit condition Y. However, there are also disjunctions; different concepts do draw attention to different groups of people.
