Abstract

"This pilot looked to assess whether increasing the childcare element of tax credits acted as an incentive for people to move into work. Data analysis in this evaluation shows that cost is not a single, critical, factor influencing family decisions as to whether to move into work and childcare. It may however have importance in terms of the childcare chosen and is certainly one of a number of factors a family will consider before making the decision to work. Where this data analysis report explains the bare numbers of what families did over the pilot period please also refer to the research element of the Childcare Affordability Pilot (CAP09) project which assesses the reasons behind their behaviours and provides clarity as to the decision processes families go through." - Page 2.
