Personal tax credits: Children in low-income families local measure: 2012 snapshot as at 31 August 2012

The Children in Low-Income Families Local Measure shows the proportion of children living in families in receipt of out-of-work (means-tested) benefits or in receipt of tax credits where their reported income is less than 60 per cent of UK median income. HMRC has republished these statistics due to an error having been found within the original versions. The error was caused by a coding problem which has now been corrected. There was no issue with the underlying data and no previous versions of the statistics were affected.

The definitive national measure of relative child poverty as set out in the Child Poverty Act 2010, is contained in the DWP Households Below Average Income (HBAI) publication series.
