This section provides further information on the Scottish Government's research into Poverty.

The Equality and Tackling Poverty Research Team is responsible for developing a research evidence base to support work across a range of issues including: welfare, the impacts of deprivation, and financial inclusion.

The Scottish Government and its Agencies collect, analyse and publish data on income and poverty. The information has been brought together on the Scottish Government’s Income and Poverty Statistics web area: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Social-Welfare/IncomePoverty.
