Poverty: the facts | 6th edition

Publication date: 2017 Edition: 6th Format: Paperback Published by: Child Poverty Action Group
ISBN: 978 1 910715 21 5


This eagerly awaited new edition of CPAG’s flagship policy publication provides the clearest and most comprehensive picture of poverty in the UK today.

With four million children now living in poverty in the UK, and independent experts forecasting that figure is set to rise, the significant progress made at the turn of the millennium to eliminate child poverty is being reversed.                                             

Based on the latest official figures, Poverty: the facts looks at why UK child poverty rises and falls.                                         

It answers the following questions:                                          

• What do we mean by poverty?
• How do we measure poverty?
• Who is at risk of poverty?
• Who is in poverty?
• How does the UK compare with other countries?
• What can we do about it?                               

Written by leading academics and policy analysts, Poverty: the facts is essential for anyone wanting to understand the policy and political debates around poverty, and is essential reading for academics, students, social workers, welfare rights workers, financial inclusion teams and the wider policy community.

For CPAG members and CAB customers, the handbook is available for £12.75. Please contact us on 020 7812 5227 or email: bookorders@cpag.org.uk.
