Poverty and Social Exclusion website

This is a collaborative project which  “reports research into poverty and social exclusion, both in the UK and internationally. It gives facts and figures on a wide range of aspects of material and social deprivation and looks at the impact poverty has on people’s lives, prospects and well-being. It provides evidence as to the underlying causes of poverty and the key events in people’s lives that can leave them vulnerable to poverty. It tracks and assesses the impact of current policies on the poor” [taken from the website].  The UK input is funded by the ESRC.  The website is available at http://www.poverty.ac.uk/
