The impact of child support payments on the labour supply decisions of resident parents

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This report analyses the effect of receipt of child support payments on the labour supply of resident mothers. This is an important issue, given the role that paid employment plays in increasing the short- and long-term economic wellbeing of separated mothers. There appears to be no Australian research into this issue, and only a handful of international studies
