This paper offers an analysis of the hardships and the threats to children during the transition in Poland. Because all the various poverty lines used to distinguish the poor from the non-poor point to the same conclusion that under-15-year-olds represent the population group most at risk of poverty. The paper also presents a picture of the most significant negative social effects of the transition process, particularly as they apply to households with children.
