Poverty: the facts (5th edition) is published by leading national charity the Child Poverty Action Group. It is the most authoritative and up to date analysis of poverty in Britain. It claims that although some regions and countries in the UK are poorer than others, each contains diverse areas and cities with different poverty levels. It also considers recent government initiatives and reports on their ‘limited’ success.
Poverty: the facts now includes an index for easy reference. It is an essential resource for campaigners, policymakers, journalists, students and academics.
