Children living in workless households

The proportion of dependent children aged under 19 years who were living in households where no one was in work was estimated to be 16.1% in 2005.

In 2005, the proportion of children living in workless households in the 15% most deprived areas was estimated to be 43.5%, over four times that for the rest of Scotland at 10.8%.

In terms of urban/rural areas, in 2005, children in large urban areas were more likely to be living in a workless household (an estimated 21.0% of children in large urban areas were living in workless households compare to an estimated 5.0% for children living in remote rural areas). Please note this table was revised on 23rd Nov 2006 due to a mix up of data for 4 Local Authorities (Renfrewshire, Scottish Borders, West Lothian and West Dunbartonshire)
