Understanding poverty measurement, definitions and data

Debates about how to define and measure poverty in the UK have raged for decades. A multitude of data is available that helps quantify poverty, but that wealth of data can make finding the most useful and best supporting evidence difficult. By the end of this one-day course participants will have developed an understanding of what key poverty datasets tell us, how best to access data sources and how to use this knowledge to support the work that they do.

Lunch provided, refreshments throughout the day.
