Details

HM Revenue and Customs commissioned Frontier Economics to conduct a methodological study into the feasibility of measuring the impact on the labour and childcare markets of Tax-Free Childcare (TFC) and the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE). The study was conducted jointly with the Department for Education.

The study focused on:

  • evaluating the strengths, limitations and feasibility of different impact evaluation approaches
  • assessing how any evaluation could be conducted
  • assessing whether it is possible to isolate and measure the impacts of both policies separately
