Eradicating Child Poverty in Wales: Child Poverty Milestones and Targets Update, April 2010
The key points from the release are:
- Of the 31 child poverty indicators, 23 have sufficient data to allow an assessment (i.e. both a baseline and at least one later figure);
- Of the indicators that have been assessed, just over half of the indicators show a clear improvement, one indicator shows a clear deterioration, whilst the rest show little or no change;
- Indicators 1, 2, 3, 11, 12, 14 and 15 have been re-calculated using the Welsh Index of Multiple Deprivation 2008 instead of the Townsend measure of deprivation, since the last release. New data for these indicators is published for the first time in this release.
- Since the last release, the progress status of three indicators has changed. Indicator 12 (teenage conceptions) has shown a clear improvement and is now given a green progress status. Indicator 19 (overcrowding) has been re-evaluated using different data which is more suitable for measuring the indicator and now has a red status. Indicator 22 (workless households) has been re-evaluated using statistical tests and has now been given an amber status.
The full set of data and notes on all of the indicators will be available through our StatsWales website which the user can manipulate or download. The indicators are presented in the Child Poverty Online Report on the StatsWales website which is linked to the data tables and this will be updated throughout the year.
The Child Poverty Strategy is currently being reviewed. This statistical release will be updated after the review has taken place and reflect any changes made to the child poverty indicators. A summary of progress against the Child Poverty Strategy can be found in the Children and Young People's Well-being Monitor for Wales.
