For the period up to March 2020, households with an income less than 60% of the UK median, analysed by attributes such as age, economic status and family type.

These are the latest National Statistics for Wales. See our Measures of poverty: April 2020 to March 2021 article on why we advise against use of the 2020-21 dataset for Wales.

The data we have for relative income poverty comes from the Households Below Average Income (HBAI) report published by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).

These figures are based on results from the Family Resources Survey (FRS) which currently has a relatively small sample for Wales. This is why data are presented as 3 to 5 year rolling averages, to reduce (but not eliminate) unreliability.
