This analysis and research pack is to support 'Improving Lives: Helping Workless Families'. This government paper is underpinned by a strong evidence base that has been created with the cooperation of leading academics, analysts and policy-makers across government as well as local authorities and front-line workers. It takes the best existing evidence and adds new insights by combining survey and administrative data. This has allowed us to reach a more detailed and sophisticated understanding about the root causes of disadvantage and their impact on the outcomes of children in families where no parent is working.
