HM Revenue and Customs Working Paper 1a: Take-up of Family Credit and Working Families’ Tax Credit
Many people in the UK do not claim means-tested support to which they seem to be entitled, limiting the programmes’ usefulness as a means of helping those on low incomes. This paper examines the determinants of take-up of state support for low income working parents: Working Families’ Tax Credit between October 1999 and March 2003, and its predecessor, Family Credit.
This paper is part of the project called “Econometric Research: Impact of Working Families’ Tax Credit” funded by the Inland Revenue.
