Children’s Worlds, 2015

Abstract: This is the second international comparative report from the second wave of the Children’s Worlds survey. The report focuses on the 8-years-old age group and summarises findings for more than 17,000 children in 16 countries across four continents. Research of this kind with this age group is very unusual and this is the most wide-ranging and diverse study of its kind ever conducted internationally on children’s lives from their own perspectives.
