Al Khan was among the first to study children’s welfare in a comparative way and to monitor the status of children over time. As early as the 1940th Kahn was involved in one of the pioneering efforts to study the “state of children” in New York through his collaboration with the Citizen Committee for Children (Ben-Arieh, 2006). Similarly, some 40 years ago, Al and Sheila Kamerman were the first to examine child welfare across developed countries (Kamerman & Kahn, 1978).
