This chapter examines the socioeconomic circumstances among school-aged children in both North America and Europe. The conceptual framework that is used in this chapter has conceptualised economic ‘well-being’ as a predictor of child health and well-being, with the latter being measured with a number of psychosocial health indicators self-reported by children. The measurement of socioeconomic status among adolescents is studied as well.

Keywords: socioeconomic circumstances; conceptual framework; economic well-being; child health; well-being; psychosocial health indicators; socioeconomic status
