NIESR and Joseph Rowntree Foundation seminar on “Never-Worked” Households
Government ministers and the press have often cited this statistic as evidence of a growing problem of "welfare dependency" in the 2000s. New research by NIESR for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation investigates what drove the substantial increase in ‘never-worked’ households between 1996 and 2005 and the subsequent stabilisation, after 2007, of the reported numbers.
You are invited to a small, invitation only round-table seminar to discuss these findings and the broader issues they raise.
Date: Thursday 24 September 2015
Venue: National Institute of Economic and Social Research, 2 Dean Trench St, Smith Square, London SW1P 3HE
