Summary

 This publication presents estimates of persistent poverty in Scotland. These figures have previously only been available for Great Britain and have not been broken down to country level. Recent work by analysts at the Department for Work and Pensions has enabled Scotland figures to be produced. These results can also be found in the Scottish Government statistics publication: “Poverty and Income Inequality in Scotland, 2009/2010: http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2011/05/povertystats0910
