Monitoring Poverty and Social Exclusion 2011
The annual report on the state of poverty and social exclusion in the UK, from the New Policy Institute and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
Each report, using official government data, is built around a set of 50 indicators. The analysis covers a wide range of issues, ranging from low income, worklessness and debt, to ill-health, poor education and problems in communities.
This report presents the legacy that was left to the Coalition Government by its predecessor, and examines the current Government's priorities for action. While many of the indicators show the ongoing effects of the recession and subsequent low economic growth, the report also looks much further back, analysing longer-term trends.
Monitoring poverty and social exclusion 2011 is an essential resource for policy-makers and others wanting to take stock of what is happening and understand the challenges ahead.
