Social policy in Britain since 1979
This original book provides an overview of changes in social and fiscal policy since the 1970s, using a unique lifetime simulation approach to analyse how changes in these policies would affect people of low median and high income living in 1979, 1997 and 2008 if they lived their whole lives under the policy rules in place in these years.
Model lifetime analysis of current British social policy
This report uses a revolutionary new research tool, LOIS (the Lifetime Opportunity and Incentives Simulation programme), to assess the impact of current government social policy on our lives from cradle to grave.
