Description

This data was originally published by HM Revenue and Customs on the gov.uk website

The number children living in low income families is the number of children living in families in receipt of Child Tax Credit (CTC) whose reported income is less than 60 per cent of the median income or in receipt of Income Support (IS) or Income-Based Jobseekers Allowance (JSA).

The percentage of children living in low income families is the number of children living in families in receipt of CTC whose reported income is less than 60 per cent of the median income or in receipt of IS or (Income-Based) JSA, divided by the total number of children in the area (determined by Child Benefit data). The "All" age category includes all dependent children under the age of 20.

For more information and definitions please refer to the technical note.

Accuracy and Reliability

All of the estimates have been independently rounded to the nearest 5 units, so in the case of the Data Zone statistics these are normally 5 individual children. Because of this, aggregating the individual estimates may not sum to the given totals for an area. The child poverty proportions have been provided to 1 decimal place and have been derived from the unrounded counts.

The number of children in Child Benefit families gives the most robust estimate of the number of children in a particular area. However, in some instances, it is possible that there are more children in CTC (<60% median income) or IS/JSA families than there are in Child Benefit. This is due to a time lag between the Child Benefit data and Tax Credits data. Where this has happened we have capped the % of children in low-income families at 100%.
