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?

Summary:
Applying these place typology tools in policy is not straightforward - in some cases there will be an appropriate existing classification, in others a bespoke approach is required. Based on consultation with analysts, empirical work and existing literature, this paper develops and test classifications and evaluates their usefulness for policy.

Time and Income Poverty

Tania Burchardt,  November 2008
Paper No' CASEreport 57: Full paper (pdf)

Summary:
Traditional poverty measures tend to overlook those who have to work long hours to keep their families above the poverty line, and some who are classified as time poor but who could reduce their work hours without risking income poverty. This study looks at individuals who are significantly limited by time and income constraints, those who could escape income poverty only by incurring time poverty, or vice versa.
