This chapter is focused on measuring the income situation of children and provides a more differentiated picture than the one taken from traditional research designs. It presents an analysis that uses the German Socioeconomic Panel Study (GSOEP), taking a subsample of 14-year-old children. This is done in order to test whether, at this stage of young adolescence in West Germany, a correlation can be verified between different educational prospects and family income.

Keywords:   income situation, GSOEP, young adolescence, family income, educational prospects
