  • Between 2002 and 2008 Aberdeenshire was one of the local authorities with the lowest rates of relative poverty in Scotland.
  • Over this period the proportion of households in poverty may have increased slightly from around 15 percent to around 16 percent. However this change is well within the margin of error for the survey upon which these figures are based.
