Two decades of transition have seen growing diversity in economic and social development across Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States. Living conditions have changed rapidly during this period, bringing both new opportunities and greater vulnerabilities for families and children. Rapidly changing living conditions in countries require monitoring systems that are sensitive to qualitative changes in the lives of children. So far, monitoring of child well-being has mainly focused on access to services while changes in the quality of service provision and the subjective well-being of children are less well captured. The index of child well-being for 21 countries of Eastern Europe and Central Asia presented in this chapter brings together existing cross-national data on a range of child well-being indicators to provide an overview of countries’ performance across different dimensions of children's life. Based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and international developments in child indicators research, child well-being is assessed across the following dimensions: material well-being, housing, health, education, personal & social well-being, family and risk & safety.
