The new statistics are a joint release by Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and provide a more coherent picture of children in low-income families.
For both Relative and Absolute measures, before housing costs, these annual statistics include counts of children by:
geography, including by:
Westminster parliamentary constituency
Middle Super Output Area
year (2014/15 to 2018/19)
age of child
gender of child
work status of the family
The statistics in this release complement and should be viewed as a companion to the Households Below Average Income (HBAI) release which provides survey estimates of children in low income households at national and regional level.
