Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


The review of literature that follows this executive summary has been framed in terms of the question: Within developed English-speaking economies, what are (i) the core psychosocial characteristics of families that affect the likelihood of children relying on income support when they attain working age and (ii) appropriate questionnaire-based measures of those concepts? To the greatest extent possible, we have adopted the rigour of systematic reviewing (Section 5). This included the use of careful screening, inclusion, exclusion and instrument selection criteria to help define the scope of our review with clarity and to ensure that we have reviewed, without bias, the best available material. Our findings are presented in a structure that is suitable for a range of potential end-users (Section 3 and Section 5)
