The UNICEF research found not all children in cities benefited from the so-called urban advantage - the idea that higher incomes, better infrastructure and proximity to services make for better lives.
Although most urban children benefit from living in cities, the study identified 4.3 million globally who were more likely to die before age five than their rural counterparts, and said 13.4 million were less likely to complete primary school.
