Today End Child Poverty published their latest estimate of child poverty across the UK. Using official data sources, they estimate how many children live in low income households in each region, local authority and electoral ward. The graph below uses the ward data. It ranks the wards from poorest to least poor based on the proportion of children in poverty. It then shows the cumulative total of children in poverty based on the ranking of the wards, eg 20% of poor children live in 6% of wards.
