Abstract: Both earnings and social transfers are important determinants of the living standards of disadvantaged families with children. What is their relative role and how do they interact? This paper documents the variation in relative living standards of the poorest fifth of children in rich nations, with a particular focus on the relative importance of social transfers (net of taxes) and labour market incomes. Overall, the cross-national variation in the disposable income of disadvantaged children is comprised equally of variation in market and transfer income.Buy tickets/get more info now
