"In this contribution, we focus on the impact the transition to a third child has on the financial situation of families. At first, we investigate the labour market participation of mother as a critical factor of impact on family income and then address the issue of poverty risk. A more detailed insight in the economic situation of large families - as compared to smaller ones - can be obtained by a differentiated presentation of various components of the post-government household income. It can be shown that state transfers largely contribute to the disposable income of large families. This fact notwithstanding, when compared to smaller families, large families generate significantly lower equivalent incomes. Thus, a comparative disadvantage for large families can be observed. We illustrate the family situation by citing from narrative interviews with mothers in large families." (author's abstract)
