This report is the 2011 edition of indicators of poverty and social exclusion in Wales, providing a comprehensive analysis of trends.

This is the third update of Monitoring poverty and social exclusion in Wales. It is set against the Welsh Government's stated commitment to end child poverty by 2020. After looking at the mixed results of policy over the last ten years, it examines how far higher employment might take Wales towards its goal - and what its wider implications might be.

The study examines:

  • Poverty rates amongst adults, children and pensioners;
  • Under-employment;
  • Qualification levels;
  • The effects of higher employment on child poverty.
