Our research has identified that although the existing income-based poverty statistics do go some way to meeting user’s needs, there is clearly more that could be done. Our strategic recommendations outline how we expect the producers of the statistics to work both individually and in collaboration to develop the statistics so that they address the issues outlined.
Many of the statistics covered by the recommendations in this report are annual surveys with significant time lags. This means that any new developments and any changes to production processes and presentation cannot not be achieved immediately. We will support the producers in meeting our strategic recommendations and continue to monitor their approach to meeting the user need for income-based poverty statistics.Back to top
