An Empirical Study of Unemployment and the Number of Children in Care
Alan Carruth and
CEP Discussion Papers from Centre for Economic Performance, LSE
The paper uses British country data from the 1980s to try to identify the factors which determine the number of children in care. A doubling of unemployment appears to be associated, cateris paribus, with a rise by two thirds in the number of children in care. In this complex and relatively unexplored field, however, all finding must be treated cautiously.
