The Characteristics of the Formation of Income of Multi-Child Households under Conditions of a Financial Crisis
This paper represents a study of the material and social status of multi-child families across Russia. The authors provide a rationale for methodologically setting multi-child families apart into a separate social group. The authors’ analysis of multi-child families’ income levels, material status, standard of living, and levels of satisfaction is predicated on a series of surveys and data from specific Internet resources.The findings characterize the current material status of multi-child families as low, which signals the need for greater attention on the part of the authorities and nongovernmental organizations. In recent years, there have been sharp declines in the real income of multi-child families, which has resulted in greater expenditure on food and less spending on all other items. There is a need to conduct operational monitoring in the course of providing social assistance to multi-child families.This kind of research should help generate the right decisions, domesticate new technology faster, and achieve desired changes in the status of multi-child families.
