Carruth, A. and Oswald, A. (1991) An empirical study of unemployment and the number of children in care. CEP discussion paper, 39. Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
The paper uses British country data from the 1980s to try to identify the factors which determine the number of children in care. A doubling of unemployment appears to be associated, cateris paribus, with a rise by two thirds in the number of children in care. In this complex and relatively unexplored field, however, all finding must be treated cautiously.
