At this briefing we will present findings from a new IFS report 'Child and working-age poverty from 2010 to 2020'. This report forecasts income poverty in the UK among children and working-age adults from 2010-11 to 2020-21, accounting for expected economic and demographic changes and current government policy towards personal taxes and state benefits. It updates and extends previous JRF-funded work by Mike Brewer and Robert Joyce which forecast poverty through to 2013-14, and builds on previous ESRC-funded work by Mike Brewer, James Browne and Wenchao Jin which simulated the impact of Universal Credit on household incomes.
