  You are the richest kids in Europe
Updated 15 January 2003, 10.27

Feeling flush?

Well, you should be!

You are the richest kids in western Europe, a study out on Wednesday says.

Fact File
Average weekly pocket money
Wales - 8.49
Midlands - 7.60
London - 7.59
North west - 6.61
East Anglia - 6.18
Yorkshire and Humberside - 6.13
Scotland - 6.08
South west - 5.41
North east - 5.34
South east - 4.91

Brits aged between 10 and 13 receive an average of 7.58 every week from pocket money and odd jobs.

And that's 2.79 more than the average for western Europe!

It's also 3.37 more than British kids received just five years ago!

But make the most of it now.

Fact File
Top jobs
Washing the car - 2.30
Cleaning pet's cage - 1.92
Doing homework - 1.02
Making the bed - 0.76

As the amount is only expected to rise by a measly 41p during the next five years, says the report by market analysts Datamonitor.

And while most of you are rolling in it - nearly three out of every 20 kids have no pocket money at all, Internet service provider AOL says.
