DWP: Consultation on measuring child poverty

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) launched a consultation on measuring child poverty on 15 November 2012.

This consultation asks how we can best reflect the reality of child poverty using a multidimensional measure.

A number of potential dimensions are proposed: income and material deprivation, worklessness, unmanageable debt, poor housing, parental skill level, access to quality education, parental health and family stability.

The consultation closed on 15 February 2013.
