This is the first study on how both poverty and wealth are geographically distributed in Britain. It covers the past 40 years. On wealth and place very little is understood, and establishing its distribution is essential for a more thorough understanding of social inequalities.
The study builds on previous work on poverty in Britain by Wheeler et al. (2005) and Pantazis et al. (2006), for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
