New estimates of the proportion of children in combined low income and material deprivation by council area and household characteristics.

Your feedback

These statistics are published as experimental statistics. This means that we are still developing them, and we welcome any feedback.

Issues we plan to address

  • collect data from more households to reduce the uncertainty around our estimates
  • collect more detailed income data
  • improve the housing cost data
  • review how we account for different household sizes and compositions

Your input

Please get in touch with your suggestions of how we can improve these statistics. This could be about additional break-downs of the data, how we present the statistics, how you can access them, or any changes to the methodology you would like us to consider.
