    Description

    In the 2005 Budget, the government announced a range of controversial welfare-to-work reforms, that involve major changes in the income support arrangements for sole parents. While there is intense public and political interest in the likely distributional impact of the reforms, no studies have yet been undertaken quantifying the weekly change in disposable income and in effective marginal tax rates for particular types of sole parent families. This project will provide estimates of the impact of welfare to work reforms upon sole parents.
