September 2013: Recently released GLA research indicates that:
- The number of Londoners living in poverty has seen little change over the last few years.
- More than a third of London’s children are in households with income below the poverty line, though rates have again fallen. The poverty rate for children in London, after housing costs, remains higher than for any other region, but is at its lowest level for 16 years.
- Child poverty in Outer London, before housing costs are taken into account, has fallen to the same level it was when the Government set Child Poverty reduction targets.
