More Children Living at Subsistence Minimum

Published måndag 27 mars 2006 kl 12.14

Save the Children Sweden reports that more and more children of single parents and children with foreign backgrounds live in poverty.

This is particularly noticeable in large cities, with Malmö cited as the worst example.

According to the study, children in single parent homes are three times as likely to suffer economic difficulties as those with two parents.  Children with a foreign background are four times as likely to experience poverty than Swedish children.

Save the Children Sweden defines economically vulnerable children as those who grow up in households surviving on the subsistence minimum, often with parents who receive social benefits.
