For Tax Credits, details of proportions of families in receipt by in work recipients, and recipients with dependent children can be calculated using HMRC’s national statistics publication found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/305886/cwtc-apr14.xls.
Out-of-work families should be included when considering the proportion of families with dependent children as all families in this category have dependent children.
HM Revenue and Customs does not hold information for Child Benefit on the work status of a recipient family and so an answer cannot be provided. All recipients of Child Benefit have dependent children.
