This followed the publication of Social justice: transforming lives in March 2012 which set out the government’s vision for providing the support needed to turn around the lives of those experiencing multiple disadvantages.
The statistics set out the latest results for the Family stability indicator and compare them to the baseline set out in ‘Social Justice: transforming lives – one year on’.
The Family Stability indicator measures:
the percentage of all children who are not living with both their birth parents, by age of child
the percentage of children in low income households not living with both parents compared to the percentage of children in middle to higher income households
the percentage of children living with both birth parents where the parents report happiness or unhappiness in their relationship
