Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Apr 07, 2018 | London School of Economics and Political Science, Polly Vizard, Tania Burchardt et al

Internationally, there is a growing emphasis on poverty as a multidimensional phenomenon covering education, health and physical security as well as living standards. To date, however, relatively little attention has been given to the phenomenon of exclusion of the potentially most disadvantaged children vis-à-vis child poverty and multidimensional disadvantage from available statistics. In this report for the London School of Economics and Political Science, Polly Vizard, Tania Burchardt et al address the “invisibility” of such children in the available statistics, and how the data infrastructure can be improved in future.
