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 paper aims to discuss whether significant differences exist in income growth between households with and without children. The analysis 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. This pattern is not the same across countries likely due to various socioeconomic and institutional factors: Germany displays the opposite pattern and Italy a mixed pattern, partly related to the different degree of child-sensitive social protection.
