Abstract

According to one measure from the government figures released today, an extra 300,000 children have fallen below the poverty line since last year. However, since there are various measures and methods for evaluating poverty, different pictures can be painted. Conor Darcy notes that though the absolute low income figures are concerning as is in-work poverty, the combined measures muddy the waters somewhat. But taken together, the report does suggest there’s still lots of work to be done to stem the rise of poverty.
