4 4 Contents of the 2006/07 publication Similar to previous years ­Detailed analysis of household incomes of all individuals, children, working age adults and pensioners for 2006/07 ­By quintile, composition of low-income groups and risk of being in a low-income group ­Time series of populations, composition of low-income groups and risk of being in a low-income group ­Summary statistics about the overall income distribution and persistent poverty

6 6 Average real income growth, 1998/ /06

7 7 Relative low-income indicator Relative incomes are assessed against the median of the year in question The indicator falls if the income of poorer households rises faster than population as a whole

8 8 Absolute low-income indicator Absolute incomes are assessed against the median in 1998/99 The indicator falls if poorer households are seeing their income rise in real terms

9 9 Change in 60 per cent relative median indicator Between 1998/99 and 2005/06: ­Whole population - 0.8m fall BHC (1.2m AHC) ­Children - 0.6m fall BHC (0.6m AHC) ­Working age adults - 0.4m rise BHC (0.5m AHC) ­Pensioners - 0.5m fall BHC (1.1m AHC)

13 13 Key changes for the 2006/07 publication Material deprivation and low income Disability definition Restructuring for greater clarity Greater harmonisation with other FRS-based publications

14 14 Measures of child poverty Three measures of child poverty outlined in SR2007 ­number of children in relative low-income households ­number of children in absolute low-income households ­number of children in relative low-income households and in material deprivation

15 15 Low-income and material deprivation concept Measure is combination of: ­Low-income threshold of 70 per cent below median income Before Housing Costs ­material deprivation measure Introduced in 2004/05 Aims to capture wider measure of families living standards

16 16 Low-income and material deprivation measure Material deprivation element based on affordability of 21 goods and services ­Material deprivation defined on basis of items that households say they cannot afford ­Prevalence weighting used, such that the higher the proportion that owns that item, the more the inability to afford it contributes to the measure. ­Overall score of 25 or more needed to be materially deprived 2.1 million children in low-income and material deprivation in 2005/06, down from 2.2 million in 2004/05

17 17 Disability definition We have extended the definition of disability used in the HBAI publication ­More in line with the Disability Discrimination Act Now includes individuals who: ­receive medication or treatment without which their impairment, illness or disability would substantially limit their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities ­have ever had a long-term impairment, illness or disability that substantially limited their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities Has the impact of increasing the number of individuals classified as having a disability

18 18 Restructuring and harmonising the publication We will bring the supplementary tables into the main section text ­All tables covering the same groups together ­Easier to navigate through the publication ­Dropped some tables in consultation with users We have sought to harmonise our definitions and classifications with other FRS-based publications ­FRS publication ­Income related benefits: Estimates of take-up
