Abstract:

We comparatively examine single-parent and biparental families in Sweden, France, Great-Britain, the Netherlands and the four main Canadian provinces, asking the following questions. How many individuals living in these families are poor (less than 50% of the median income), acutely poor (less than 30%) and precarious (between 50 and 75%)? What is the share of market income, of public support and, as the case may be, of child support payments from a former spouse in the budget of these two types of families at these various income levels? To what extent do various public support programs (support for families, social insurance, and social assistance) lift individuals in these family types out of poverty? How does family composition shape the labour market participation of working age individuals, and how both of these factors account for poverty (leading, in particular, to the situation of being a “working poor”)?
