Social Assistance and Minimum Income Protection Interim Dataset (SAMIP)

The Social Assistance and Minimum Income Protection Interim Dataset (SAMIP) includes detailed information on the benefit position of low-income households in industrialized welfare democracies. In the current version SaMip includes 34 countries and observations are for every year 1990-2013. The variables in the dataset are based on a type-case approach, where benefit levels have been calculated for three typical households; a single person, a lone parent, and a two parent family.
