The distribution of Child Poverty in England – latest Government research report


The DFE Child Poverty Unit has conducted a study into the distribution of child poverty in England using its Local child Poverty Measure. This has been done to support the Department’s Child Poverty Strategy. The study analysed local level child poverty data to explore the distribution of child poverty in England and to find out how child poverty rates in areas of disadvantage have changed over time. The (revised) local child poverty measure was defined as ‘the proportion of children living in families in receipt of out of work benefits or tax credits where their reported income is less than 60 percent median income’.
