Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many people have been deemed to be living in in-work poverty in each (a) constituency in Wales and (b) ward in Delyn in each year since 2010.

Answer (Kit Malthouse)

National statistics on the number of people living in in-work relative low income are set out in the annual "Households Below Average Income" publication. The numbers of people living in in-work relative low income is not available at constituency or ward level in this publication because the survey sample sizes are too small to support the production of robust estimates at this geography.

The percentage of working age adults living in relative low income by economic status at a UK level can be found in file “5_workingage_timeseries_risk.ods”, table 5_11ts and the number of working age adults living in relative low income for Wales can be found in file “5_workingage_timeseries_region.ods”, table 5.18ts.
