The report, Cost of a Child in 2017, estimates the cost of raising a child in the UK, based on the minimum income standard: a threshold calculated according to what members of the public deem essential items for every family. It estimates that families in which both parents work full-time on the national living wage are 13 per cent (or £59 per week) short of what they need to give their children a minimum living standard. Single parents working full-time on the same wage are 18 per cent short: double the shortfall they faced in 2012. Couples and single parents not in work face a shortfall of more than 40 per cent.

In 1994, 84 per cent were married. By 2012 that figure had dropped to 59 per cent.
