A new theme of Child Poverty has been added to the Local Profiles interactive tool.
The Child Poverty Local Profile is an automated tool for all upper and lower tier authorities in England containing up-to-date published data. Maps, tables, charts and analytical text are produced using agreed indicators, to provide better understanding of child poverty in your selected areas. Regional, National and comparator figures are presented where available.
Other themes within the Local Profiles CD include Employment, Skills, Housing, Inclusion, Demography, Environment, Economic Context and Enterprise. Over one thousand variables are included in these profiles which can also assist the contextual analysis of Child Poverty.
For more information please see the Local Profiles homepage.
To get a copy of the CD please email firstname.lastname@example.org and quote 'CP1'. Please do not forget to supply the postal address to which you want the CD to be sent.
The case study examines data from the Local Profiles to show information on children, children in poverty, and contextual data for the two local authority areas of Nottingham and Rushcliffe, and shows how to use the data for more detailed geographies within these two areas. The case study is intended to show:
How the Local Profiles can be used to analyse data for an area
The relationship between different economic and social factors which relate to children
How the data at LSOA level might contribute to an understanding of where there are a high percentage of children and where children live who are considered to be in poverty
