During this webinar, organised as part of the series on COVID-19 & Inequality, Professor Andrew Steptoe will describe the effects of the pandemic on the mental health of the general population and high risk groups, with particular reference to socioeconomic inequalities. It will draw on findings from research using health registries, longitudinal studies instituted during the pandemic, and work on existing cohort studies.
This virtual high-level roundtable will bring together representatives, experts and stakeholders from across OECD countries who have taken action to put child well-being at the top of the policy agenda. They will discuss their ongoing progress, the types of actions they think are most relevant to ensure that the needs of children are well understood and properly assessed, as well as how we can improve our child well-being policy monitoring and steering efforts. This will also be the opportunity for the OECD to present its new report Measuring What Matters for Child Well-being and Policies, which lays the groundwork for improved child well-being measurement and better data to inform better child well-being policies.

OECD World Forums on “Statistics, Knowledge and Policy”
For close to two decades, the OECD World Forums on "Statistics, Knowledge and Policy" have been pushing forward the boundaries of well-being measurement and policy. By bringing together thousands of leaders, experts and practitioners from around the world, and from all sectors of society, the Forums have helped to shape the ongoing paradigm shift to emphasise people’s well-being as the ultimate focus for policies and collective action.
