Abstract

Drawing on the increasing number of sources of data and poverty measures, Poverty in Scotland 2007 provides up-to-date facts and figures on poverty, and how that poverty impacts on people and places across Scotland. It expands on the information provided in the previous four editions, draws on the experience of people living in poverty, and includes: measurements of poverty; living with poverty; groups vulnerable to poverty; rural poverty, community-based responses, financial exclusion, local taxation, employability and health. The book includes a selection of essays from leading figures in the voluntary and academic sectors. These highlight the distinctive features of Scotland’s experience of poverty and the extent to which reserved and devolved policies have contributed to progress in tackling it. The book concludes with a discussion on how policy needs to develop if poverty in Scotland is finally to become a thing of the past.
