This paper summarises the economic literature on modelling take-up, with a focus on income-related or work-related benefits or tax credits. It gives a framework for thinking about aggregate measures of take-up rates, and shows how existing studies differ from each other in their data requirements and modelling complexity. It also shows how models of non-take-up, when appropriate data are available, can account for measurement and expectational errors, and how they can value the costs of claiming and receiving some benefits.
