Our report looks at the current state of children’s well-being and how children in England compare to those in 14 other countries around the world.
A new international study ranks England bottom for a number of aspects of children’s well-being, including those relating to school life, bullying and, especially for teenage girls, feelings about themselves.
Click on the areas of well-being below and see how children in England fare in comparison to the other 14 countries studied.
Page 50 of our full report shows the results for all 30 aspects of life that children were asked about in the study. England was in the bottom half of the table for 24 of these.
* The teachers, body image, appearance and self confidence rankings order countries by the proportion of children with low levels of wellbeing in each domain, from lowest (1) to highest (15). The rankings in the main report are different since they are ordered by children’s mean wellbeing in each country, rather than proportions of children with low wellbeing.
