Benefits and wages

Do cash transfers prevent families from income poverty? Does work pay? By how much does family income drop during unemployment? The Benefit and Wages database provides a large number of timely tax-benefit indicators that allows monitoring progress on recent tax-benefit reforms and comparing benefit generosity and work incentives across countries, years and family circumstances. The indicators use output from the OECD tax-benefit model, which enables international comparisons of how tax liabilities and benefit entitlements shape the disposable income of working-age families.
