Child poverty

DWP: Public Views on child poverty - Results from the first polling undertaken as part of the Measuring Child Poverty consultation.
This document collates the results the first polling undertaken as part of the Measuring Child Poverty consultation. It asked a single question where the respondents were asked what they thought was important in deciding whether someone was growing up in child poverty.

"For many years the principal measure of child poverty has been based on
relative income. In times of recession the relative poverty line tends to fall.

Between 2009-10 and 2010-11, 300,000 children moved out of relative
poverty largely due to reductions in median incomes. At the same time
absolute poverty remained unchanged, implying that the living standards of
children did not improve over this period.

Following the publication of the most recent child poverty statistics in June
2012, the Government set out its intention to run a consultation to identify
better measures of child poverty. This consultation started 15 November
2012 and ends 15 February 2013."
