International comparative studies prove that it is children who are at the highest risk of poverty, which results in the reproduction of poverty. Identifying the most crucial factors influencing children's poverty, the authorewss emphasizes the interdependence of social and genetic determinants impacting the opportunities of children growing up in families of low social status. In this perspective, transmission of poverty is even more multi-dimensional than seen from classical sociological standpoints. In the authoress' opinion, it is recommended not to disregard the biological factors, frequently determined by social environment.
