The accompanying package contains an updated version of the Unadjusted Means- Tested Benefits Rate (UMBR) data set. UMBR is a proxy measure of income poverty for small geographic areas in England, Scotland and Wales. It provides a singlenumber household poverty rate for somewhat over 40,000 small area units annually from 2001 to 2013. UMBR is produced from public data sources by the Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion at the London School of Economics, as part of the Social Policy in a Cold Climate (SPCC) research programme. UMBR is suitable for a variety of purposes, including analysis of the local distribution of poverty over time, and the coding of other individual or area data-sets with an income poverty indicator.
