An Econometric Analysis of International Variations in Child Welfare

Abstract
This paper attempts to further analytical understanding of the ways in which child welfare can be improved. I examine the determinants of international variations in child health, nutrition, and education, analyzing the impacts both of government expenditures and of structural variables, such as income distribution, that are less policy-sensitive in the short run. To control for cross-country variations in child welfare outcomes related to per capita income, I use ‘national performance gap’ measures of five dimensions of child welfare, and an aggregate index derived from them, as dependent variables.
