How do we measure poverty?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Book abstract: In a year in which Scotland’s constitutional future is to be decided, this latest in the Poverty in Scotland series provides an indispensable overview of the poverty and anti-poverty policies that form an increasingly important backdrop to the wider independence debate. In a comprehensive, yet accessible, account of the state of poverty in Scotland, the main trends are highlighted and explained against the backdrop of ‘austerity’ and radical changes to the UK social security system.
