House of Commons briefing: Poverty in the UK

A June 2017 House of Commons Library briefing paper provides statistics on poverty in the UK (pdf).

This note sets out the levels and rates of poverty in the UK, including historical trends and forecasts for future years. The focus here is on poverty defined in terms of disposable household income, although poverty may be defined in different ways and there is no single, universally accepted definition.
