Family structures such as those of a single-parent and unmarried parents would affect the stability of child support. In some European countries, the role of marriage and responsibilities for children strengthen through legislation.

Intra-household allocation may be a key issue for families, as the allocation in some families rests on an equal division of financial resources while in some other families these resources are divided based on bargaining between the father and mother.

Social policies may influence family structures. For instance, in Singapore, the government’s underlying philosophy is that a family is responsible for itself and the government’s intervention in welfare should be minimal. This translates into how important the family unit is in politics. Public housing is preferably given to married couples (who have established a family unit) as opposed to single people (no family unit).

Dear MEL professionals, would you please help me out with the odd data? For example, in a survey about low-income parents, the column of age has some strange values, such as 120.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
