The main aim of the project is to identify which employment and household characteristics increase the risk of a child entering poverty.

This document sets out some early findings from that project and the methodology used. It presents findings on:

  • child poverty transitions
  • child poverty entry and exit rates
  • child poverty entry rates by sub-group of child

It is expected that the final report will be published in the autumn of 2014.
