Refugee status and country of origin shape the economic outcomes of newcomer children later in lifeThe number of refugees has increased worldwide, and about half of them are children and youth.

Yet, the long-term effect of refugee status on newcomer children's economic trajectories varies by country of origin, signaling the need for effective resettlement support and initiatives to tackle broader systemic barriers for newcomer children, beyond refugees.
