Scotland -Poverty and income inequality increasing

over the four-year period 2013-2017, eleven percent of people in Scotland were in persistent poverty after housing costs. The combined low income and material deprivation rate for children as well as persistent child poverty both fluctuated in recent years and showed no clear trend. Of those children in relative poverty, almost two thirds (65 percent) were living in a household where at least one adult was in paid employment.
