Paca is thus the second most affected provincial territory after Hauts-de-France. Half of the children have a Living standards below 1,550 euros per month. What about Vaucluse?

Avignon has a high proportion of poor children

According to INSEE, this finding is partly explained by the more frequent presence of single-parent families, who are more affected by financial poverty.

In Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, children live in much more crowded accommodation than the average in the provincial areas (20.9% vs. 9.2%). After Ile-de-France (26.1%), it is the second most affected by congestion in the region. “This is explained by the density of the regional population in urban areas, where collective housing predominates: 53.9% of children live in apartments, compared to 28.8% in provincial France.”

Areas where the standard of living of children is low, for which the average standard of living of children is the lowest, are located in large municipalities. In Avignon, 69% of children live (compared to 20% in the region), 45% in Marseille, 41% in Toulon and 31% in Nice.

Inequalities in the quality of life of children are identified between the poles and crowns of the attractions of the cities.

Crowns attract rather wealthy populations, often in search of access to private housing or property. As a result, in the crown, 59% of children live in areas where there is a fairly high or high standard of living, whereas only 29% of children at the pole have it.

In contrast, at the pole, 55% of children live in areas where the standard of living is low or moderately low.

Favorable living conditions in Bollène and Valreas

Strictly outside the financial perspective, an indicator of complementary living standards has been created by INSEE, which integrates other aspects of the living environment, such as housing type, air quality or social environment. This gives a much more favorable view of the situation of children in areas located outside the attractions of cities. In these regions, 42% of children live in areas with relatively low living standards but not in areas with moderate or unfavorable living conditions.

“Notably, this search is also true of area crowns”, note INSEE 7 For example, in the suburbs of Apt and Cavaillon, more than three-quarters of children live in an area with a favorable living environment, where no child lives in a high-quality area.

In municipalities outside the city, the living conditions of children are somewhat more favorable than in the suburbs.

In centers of less than 200,000 inhabited areas affected by financial poverty, the living conditions take into account the reduced financial hardship. In the centers of Bollène and Valreas, no children live in areas with adverse living conditions, where more than half of the children live in areas with low living standards. In the center of Carpentras, hostile living areas comprise 36% of children, while 68% live in areas with low living standards.
