Low-income dynamics

Abstract

HBAI analysis contained elsewhere uses a snapshot survey, and records usual household income at the time of the interview. The extent to which individuals living in low-income households at a point in time are simply experiencing transitory fluctuations in income, or are persistently experiencing low income, is clearly an important issue and one that can only be addressed using longitudinal data. The issues of income mobility and the extent of persistence of low incomes experienced by different groups are therefore addressed in this chapter, using data from the longitudinal British Household Panel Survey (BHPS).
