Ethnicity and child poverty

Institute for Social and Economic Research, University of Essex on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions
Research Report 576

Publication date: 2009
Ranking: useful

This report uses a multiplicity of approaches and sources to build up as detailed a picture as possible of how and why poverty varies across ethnic groups at the current time. It explores the extent to which it is possible to explain the poverty of ethnic minority children in terms of known risk factors, and whether poverty of minority ethnic groups appears to be more intractable than the majority experience of poverty. Importantly, the report focuses on the specific experience of different ethnic groups, illuminating the diversity across groups.
