UK child poverty gaps are still increasing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The UK child poverty rate has been rising for
several years. But it is also important to
understand how far families and children are falling below the poverty line. Deeper poverty generally means greater hardship and more profound consequences for children. Jonathan Bradshaw and Antonia Keung analyse the official data using eight different measures, to show that not only is the
child poverty rate rising, but the depth of child
poverty is too.
