Child poverty, by constituency

Map of Britain

The Campaign to End Child Poverty has released data for every parliamentary constituency in the UK, showing how many children are living in low income families.

Low income means where no-one is working more than 16 hours a week or the family is receiving the full amount of Working Tax Credit.

The campaigners say this is not a direct measure of exactly how many children are in poverty, but is a good indicator of which areas have the highest child poverty levels.
