Child and working-age poverty in Northern Ireland over the next decade: an update

James Browne, Andrew Hood and Robert Joyce
Briefing note

This briefing note updates previous IFS projections of child and working-age poverty in Northern Ireland and the UK as a whole from 2012-13 to 2017-18, and in 2020-21. These projections take into account revised macroeconomic forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) published alongside Budget 2013, new forecasts of employment and earnings growth provided by Oxford Economics, and new tax and benefit policy announcements, and make use of more recent data on the UK household population.
