We have commissioned two pieces of research to address the limited evidence about the persistence of poverty at the Wales level.

The dynamics of low income

The report considers the extent to which individuals move in and out of poverty, the characteristics of those who remain in poverty and the types of events that can lead people to move in or out of poverty.

The report is based on analysis of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) and covers the years 2000 to 2008, with a particular focus on the period 2005-2008. Most of the analysis is presented at the Great Britain level, but where sample sizes allow, conclusions are drawn regarding the position in Wales.

An investigation of the potential for Wales-level analysis of the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) and Understanding Society (USoc)

The report provides a Wales perspective on the usability of the BHPS and its successor USoc, for analysis at the Wales level. The properties of the BHPS sample are examined via an illustrative analysis of poverty dynamics in Wales.
