Abstract

This report offers a statistical analysis of how labour market disadvantage and household changes affect the recurrent experience of poverty in Great Britain. It is now understood that poverty is not a once in a lifetime experience. Once poor, it is likely that a person will suffer poverty repeatedly throughout their life. Therefore, a deeper understanding of this recurrence is required if policy is to have a significant impact on poverty reduction.
