Note that the poverty estimates for 2008/09 and 2009/10 have been revised from the previous year's publication "Poverty and income inequality in Scotland: 2009/10". This is due to a slight revision to the UK dataset due to changes in the direct tax system in Northern Ireland and new tenure data from CLG.
