A system of social support of multiple-child families has been established in Russian Federation, but it is still fragmented and insufficient, and multiple-child families themselves continue to be one of the most vulnerable social groups. Analysis of the experience of other countries and the openness of information on this issue allow us to improve the internal regulatory framework in this area. In this master's thesis, the socio-economic situation of multiple-child families in Russia and foreign countries is considered, and also was studied the practice of their social support on the basis of Russian and foreign studies (RLMS, PSID, HILDA, ESS), statistical data (Rosstat, Eurostat, OECD, US Census Bureau) and regulations. Also, on the basis of online survey of multiple-child families in Moscow and the results of a study of multiple-child families in Moscow and Voronezh, conducted by in-depth interviews, an analysis of existing problems in the field of social support of multiple-child families in Russia was carried out. As a result, the thesis proposes a set of recommendations for improving social support measures for multiple-child families in Russia, developed taking into account the experience of countries related to various types of Welfare State, including: France, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Australia, Great Britain and the United States.
