Poverty projections between 2010-11 and 2013-14: a post-Budget 2011 update

Date: 31 March 2011

This note provides projections of relative and absolute income poverty among children and working-age adults in the UK for each year between 2010-11 and 2013-14. This constitutes an update of IFS projections published in December 2010 . Readers interested in the methods and assumptions used should refer to Section 2 of that Briefing Note. The updated results are very similar to the original ones, and all the main qualitative conclusions are unchanged, so the results are not discussed in any detail here.
