What matters most in how poverty shapes children’s well-being and development? How can data inform social policy and practice approaches to improving the outcomes for poorer children? Using life course analysis from the Young Lives study of 12,000 children growing up in Ethiopia, India, Peru and Vietnam over the past fifteen years, this book examines how poverty affects children’s development in low- and middle-income countries, and how policy has been used to improve their lives. It then goes on to show when key developmental differences occur, using new evidence to develop a framework of what matters most and when.
