Links to poverty and wealth data webpages

These links are to constituency-level datasets formatted as webpages. To download the data in other formats and for further details about the datasets, check the downloads page.

Each page includes the percentage of households falling into each of the following groups, or the constituencies ranked by these percentages:

1. Core Poor
households who experience poverty in all three dimensions: they are income poor and they are materially deprived and they are subjectively poor. Core Poor households are a subset of Breadline Poor households.
2. Breadline Poor
households living below a relative poverty line, and, as such, are excluded from participating in the norms of society
3. Non-poor, non-wealthy
households that are neither (Breadline) poor nor (Asset) wealthy
4. Asset Wealthy
households who are relatively wealthy, estimated using the relationship between housing wealth and the contemporary inheritance tax threshold
5. Exclusive Wealthy
households with so much wealth that they can exclude themselves from the norms of society. Exclusive Wealthy households are a subset of Asset Wealthy households.
