This data tool brings together indicators of child poverty as identified by the Child Poverty Unit. It is designed to allow the comparison and analysis of data from different local authorities (LAs) and regions in England.

LAs and their partners can use this information to help them publish an assessment of the needs of children living in poverty in their area. They are legally required to do this by the Child Poverty Act 2010.
