Distributional effects

A central part of the IFS’s contribution to public debate is our analysis of the distributional effect of the tax and benefit system. Using large household datasets, IFS researchers evaluate the effect of changes to the tax and benefit system on households across the income distribution. Recent research has begun to consider the distributional effect of policies on the basis of lifetime income, rather than annual or monthly income.
