SPRU, along with the Social Disadvantage Research Centre at the University of Oxford, has produced the first index of child well-being at the level of Lower Layer Super Output Areas for England. The index will enable the policy and research community to identify which local areas are the highest priority for action to raise child well-being, and the extent to which services and initiatives are focussing on the well-being of children in those areas. The index uses mainly administrative data on children covering seven domains of well-being: * income, * health, * education, * housing, * environment, * crime * children in need. In an associated article for the journal of Child Indicators Research, the results of the index are explored using mapping software and case studies. The strengths and weaknesses of the index are discussed and suggestions are made for improvements in further iterations.
