The first Poverty and Social Exclusion (PSE) report ‘The Impoverishment of the UK’ was published in March 2013.
The research finds that for a significant proportion of the population their living standards fall below minimum levels and for some, living conditions and opportunities have been going backwards.
The Poverty and Social Exclusion research project, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, is the largest ever study of poverty conducted in the UK.
