The Government is committed to the abolition of child poverty by 2020. This study investigates the prevalence and characteristics of poor children in large families (three/four or more children) in the UK and how we compare with other countries. It also explores how the tax and benefit system has varied by family size over recent years and how this compares with other countries. It discusses how the tax and benefit system might be adapted in favour of large families so that the child poverty target might be achieved.
