Map of the month June 2024: International Children's Day

International Children's Day was first proclaimed in Geneva during the World Conference on Child Welfare 1925 and is now celebrated on 1 June in many countries in honour of children. On this occasion we take a look at the distribution of children (aged 14 or less) in the Centrope region. The map shows a remarkably high percentage of children in relation to the total population in the Bratislava region whereas Burgenland and the Hungarian part of Centrope have less children per total population. The situation in the Czech Republic is heterogeneous due to the small municipality size, but we can see a higher percentage of children in the greater metropolitan areas.The map is available through our geoportal

Chart of the month June

On the occasion of International Children's Day we take a look at children at risk of poverty or social exclusion. This indicator is defined as the sum of children (0-17) who are at-risk-of-poverty or severely materially deprived or living in (quasi-)jobless households (i.e. households with very low work intensity (below 20 %) as a share of the total population in the same age group. While the numbers are constant or slowloy decreasing in the Czech Republic, Austria, and Slovakia, we can see a significant decline in Hungary. Data source:
