OECD Family Database



The OECD Family Database is an online database with comparative information on family outcomes and family policies across the OECD countries, its enhanced engagement partners and EU member states (OECD). It contains descriptive information on the structure of families, the labour market position of families, public policies for families and children and child outcomes. The OECD Family Database brings together information from different OECD databases (e.g. the OECD Social Expenditure Database, the OECD Benefits and Wages Database, and the OECD Education Database) and databases maintained by other international organisations. Here we focus on policy data.
