Does money affect children's outcomes?

Kerris Cooper,  Kitty Stewart,  October 2013
Paper No' CASEreport 80: Read Abstract | Full paper (pdf)

Summary:
This report examines whether money has a causal impact on children’s outcomes. There is abundant evidence that children growing up in lower income households do less well than their peers on a range of wider outcomes, including measures of health and education. But is money important in itself, or do these associations simply reflect other differences between richer and poorer households, such as levels of parental education or attitudes towards parenting?

Expenditure Patterns Post-Welfare Reform in the UK: Are low-income families starting to catch up?

Paul Gregg,  Jane Waldfogel,  Elizabeth Washbrook,  May 2005
Paper No' CASE 099: Read Abstract | Full paper (pdf)

Summary:
This paper finds post 1998 UK welfare reforms children in low-income families were catching up in terms of their families’ spending in the overall areas of housing and utilities, food, clothing, leisure goods and services, and motoring and travel. The evidence also suggests reduced spending on alcohol and tobacco.
