There are no updated income inequality and poverty statistics for 2018-21 due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on data collection.
The latest estimates for Scotland using data from 2020/21 are not robust, and are unable to describe reliably how income and poverty changed in 2020/21 and also during 2018-21, compared to previous years and periods. This is because pandemic restrictions severely disrupted the data collection. As a result, we were unable to obtain a representative sample for Scotland.
