What is life like for children living in Estonia? How child-friendly is the Estonian society? Children’s well-being is an important discussion topic and the focus of many organisations, political forces and the media. For a better overview on the topic, it is necessary to collect data and study the situation and opportunities of children from various perspectives.
Statistics Estonia focuses on many areas of children’s lives, such as the environment they grow up in, their living conditions, poverty and social exclusion, the coping of households with children and population trends.
The statistics provide information, such as:
- how many children are born in Estonia each year;
- how many children live in Estonia;
- what is the expenditure of households with children per member of household;
- how many children are at risk of poverty or live in poverty.
The statistics provide important information on the situation of children in Estonia. Such data are needed for preparing laws relating to children and for measuring child well-being.
