The official statistics on the distribution of income and the extent of poverty in the UK in 2011-12 were released on Thursday 13 June 2013.

Using the data underlying these statistics, this report analyses:

  • the changes in average incomes in the most recent year of data and the period since the start of the ‘Great Recession’;
  • how the gap between rich and poor has changed and how this differs when looking at pre-tax-and-benefit income rather than net income;
  • the recent changes in both relative and absolute income poverty for the whole population and among different parts of the population;
  • the striking long-term changes in incomes and poverty rates for different parts of the population and different age groups; – the prospects for average incomes, inequality and poverty in the years ahead.
