Detail

This Households below average income (HBAI) report presents information on living standards in the United Kingdom year on year from 1994/1995 to 2014/2015.

It provides estimates on the number and percentage of people living in low-income households based on disposable income. Figures are also provided for children, pensioners, working-age adults and individuals living in a family where someone is disabled.

Use our infographic to find out how low income is measured in HBAI.

Most of the figures in this report come from the Family Resources Survey, a representative survey of around 20,000 households in the UK.

We have also published all of the publication tables (in Excel and ODS format), as well as a number of trend data files (in CSV format). These are available to download above as ‘zip’ files. Other publication tables in CSV format are available on request.
