CPS research on state welfare was quoted in a Sunday Times article by Camilla Cavendish, Sunday 26 April 2015.
"Three years ago the Centre for Policy Studies think tank tried to work out how many people were receiving more in state aid, health and education than they were paying in taxes. It calculated that 53% of households received more in benefits than they paid in tax in 2010. Even the middle fifth of earners were getting more on average than they put in, according to this thesis. Only the top two-fifths of households were paying their way."
