Our anti-poverty strategy helps us improve the standard of living for residents on a low income in the city.
Part of this strategy involves the review of evidence to ensure that the key issues selected for action are robust and relevant. Evidence includes both data, and listening to the experiences of local people.
Our ‘mapping poverty’ reports look at our data to assess the extent and distribution of low-income households in the city. The latest report shows that the total benefit population has remained relatively similar to the previous report in 2017.
The indices of multiple deprivation report helps inform us about variations in relative disadvantage between communities. The paper, below, shows the index, sub-index and domain scores for the city.
