SUMMARY

This paper compares the structure and level of the ‘package’ of tax benefits, cash benefits, exemptions from charges, subsidies and services in kind which assist parents with the costs of raising children - in 22 industrialised countries as at July 2001. It is based on the model family method using national informants.1 The Australian package falls into a second group of countries overall. The package is comparatively more generous to low-income families.
