Tackling child poverty delivery plan 2022-2026 - annex 3: child poverty measurement framework – updated
This annex to Best Start, Bright Futures: the second tackling child poverty delivery plan 2022 to 2026 provides an update on the measurement framework to monitor whether and how the drivers of poverty change over time.
Purpose and Summary of Review
The measurement framework was originally developed and published in 2018 alongside the first Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan to support the measurement of how the actions being taken were impacting on the drivers of poverty for children in Scotland.
Over the past four years since the plan was launched, we have learned that the drivers of poverty are still relevant in the way that they were intended and therefore it makes sense to continue using the same approach for the measurement framework. The indicators help us understand the direction of travel towards the 2030 child poverty targets.
In order to monitor whether and how these drivers of poverty change over time, a range of indicators were selected.
With the launch of the second Child Poverty Delivery Plan (2022-2026), the indicators were reviewed to assess whether:
- The indicators were still appropriate and up to date to reflect current policy.
- There was new data available that could measure indicators more robustly.
- There were any gaps to be covered.
There is a problem
