This paper aims to review the comparative evidence on child poverty and learn lessons for the UK. It updates previous efforts of this kind. It begins with a critical review of the sources, goes on to compare child poverty rates and variations in family and other characteristics of poor children and then reviews comparative data on the policies designed to reduce child poverty. It ends with a conclusion.
