The Comparative Family Policy Database comprises two components: the "Comparative Family Cash Benefits Database" and the "Comparative Maternity, Parental, and Childcare Leave and Benefits Database", both assembled under the direction of Anne H. Gauthier. They provide information on family allowances and parental leave regulations for 22 OECD countries.

The "Comparative Family Cash Benefits Database" currently covers the period 1960 to 2008, while the "Comparative Maternity, Parental, and Childcare Leave and Benefits Database" contains data for the period 1960-2010. The datasets constitute the most comprehensive data collection on historical trends in family policy regulations in developed welfare states, making them highly valuable for comparative studies on the development and effects of family policies (e.g. on fertility behavior).
