Statistics and research series
Data on persistent poverty in Wales, based on the Department for Work and Pensions’ Income Dynamics report.
What to keep in mind when interpreting these statistics
In this data series a person is defined as being in persistent poverty if he or she is in relative income poverty in at least 3 out of 4 consecutive years.
The source for these statistics is the Understanding Society Survey; this is different to the Households Below Average Income report which uses the Family Resources Survey.
