Abstract: Families with children in Russia are particularly exposed to risk of poverty. In this article we analyzed child benefits’ impact poverty of households with children using pooled probit model, panel probit model with random effects and multivariate probit model. Results show that receiving of benefits is positively linked with decrease of absolute and relative poverty and increase of subjective poverty (in one of the specifications of the model).
