New estimates of the proportion of children in combined low income and material deprivation by council area and household characteristics.
By Area & Housing Characteristics
"Managing aye I would say we are, we've just got no money to do
anything though or buy anything, I suppose. I've got used to that.
My mortgage is paid, and all my bills are paid and then I've got
food. But that's it"
Children are more likely than the Scottish average to live in families with limited resources if:
- they are renting their home
- they live in the most deprived areas
Children are less likely than the Scottish average to live in families with limited resources if:
- they live in an accessible rural area
- they live in the least deprived areas
Percentage of children who live in families with limited resources.
What the data says:
"Children in rented housing are at a higher risk of being in poverty."
What the data doesn't say:
"Children living in urban areas are at a higher risk of being poor compared to the whole of Scotland."
