Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

With four million children now living in poverty in the UK, and independent experts forecasting that figure is set to rise, the significant progress made at the turn of the millennium to eliminate child poverty is being reversed.

Based on the latest official figures, Poverty: the facts looks at why UK child poverty rises and falls.

It answers the following questions:

• What do we mean by poverty?
• How do we measure poverty?
• Who is at risk of poverty?
• Who is in poverty?
• How does the UK compare with other countries?
• What can we do about it?

Written by leading academics and policy analysts, Poverty: the facts is essential for anyone wanting to understand the policy and political debates around poverty, and is essential reading for academics, students, social workers, welfare rights workers, financial inclusion teams and the wider policy community.
