This report analyses the changing patterns of income deprivation in England between 1995 and 2000. Drawing on data from the department for Work and Pensions on claimants of Income Support and Jobseeker's Allowance, it explores the changes that have occurred in this time period for different types of families in England. The findings are broken down byu Government Office Regions, local authorities and wards.

The report asks the following questions about the claimant families:

  • who are they - how many are families with children, older unemployed, single people etc?
  • where are they?
  • are the focused in specific geographic locations?
  • how has the profile of income deprivation changed over time - in numbers, composition and concentration?
