Abstract

In 2004, the New Policy Institute reported on poverty and social exclusion in Scotland. The Institute has now updated this analysis for all the latest data. Overall levels of income poverty continue to fall, particularly among pensioners and children. But almost a million people in Scotland still live in income poverty and this report highlights particular areas of concern, e.g. disabled people, lone parents, low pay. A report for the whole of the UK is also available.
