This chapter has set out the prevalence of the five conditions for a cross-section of children living in a deprived inner-London community. The analysis shows that the number and identity of children affected by each condition is different, and by comparing the profiles of children with each condition against that of the rest of the sample, it has also clarified ways in which the five conditions resemble but are distinct from one another. It demonstrates that different sets of risk factors are independently predictive of each condition, and it also showed why single factors are unsuitable as proxy indicators of the conditions.

Keywords:   child well-being, poor children, risk factors, inner-London, conditions
