Abstract: Abstract The Great Recession has notably affected household income in most European countries, but not in the same way for all types of household. This note aims to discuss whether significant differences exist in income growth between households with and without children. The study focuses on Spain, finding that Spanish households with children benefited less from income growth in the period 2004–2008 and experienced more decay in income in the period 2008–2012. We compare patterns of income growth for households with and without children in several European countries, as well as evaluate the uneven impact of the crisis and the policies adopted after the crisis in both types of household across different countries.
