Children’s Well-being in UK, Sweden and Spain: The Role of Inequality and Materialism A Qualitative Study
Based on 250 interviews with children from UK, Sweden and Spain, the UNICEF commissioned researchers sought to examine the role of materialism and inequality in children’s well-being, as there is a growing consensus in the literature that these three concepts are inextricably linked – materialism is thought to be a cause, as well as an effect of negative well-being, and countries that have higher levels of inequality are known to score lower on subjective well- being indicators.
The research specifically addresses how children themselves experience the interplay between materialism, inequality and their own subjective well-being.
