This study is the 2009 edition of indicators of poverty and social exclusion in Wales, providing a comprehensive analysis of trends of poverty and social exclusion in Wales..

This is the second update of Monitoring poverty and social exclusion in Wales, following the original report in 2005, but is the first to be published in a recession. After reviewing ten-year trends in low income statistics, its focus shifts to unemployment and problem debt.

The study:

  • looks at progress on low income since the mid-1990s;
  • examines unemployment and problem debt in the current recession;
  • considers what action government could take to lessen the recession's impact on people in poverty.
