Key findings

The number of Londoners living in poverty has seen little change.

Children, particularly those in workless households, remain the group most likely to live in low income. The poverty rate for children in London, after housing costs, at 37 per cent, remains higher than for any other region, but is at its lowest level for sixteen years.

Poverty rates for children in Inner London, remained unchanged, with 44 per cent of children living in poverty, higher than in any other part of the country. The rate for Outer London also remained unchanged, at 34 per cent.

Poverty among pensioners in London has decreased again according to the latest figures. The risk of poverty for pensioners in London is close before and after housing costs according to the latest figures, (though higher in Inner London after housing costs) but remains above that for the rest of the UK.

The percentage of working age people living in poverty has increased again for London.
