Universal credit and its impact on household incomes: the long and the short of it
In this research we investigate who wins and loses from universal credit, and by how much. For the first time, we also look at the effects of universal credit on people’s incomes over eight years of their lives, rather than just at a point in time.This lets us look at the impact on those that are persistently, rather than temporarily, low income.
