The main findings of the report looking at the circumstances of the 2.1 million people who are living in poverty in London are:
- 58% of those in poverty live in Outer London (10 years ago it was 50%)
- For the first time there are more private renters in poverty than social renters
- 43% (830,000) of people in the private rented sector live in poverty, more than any other tenure (this figure has doubled in the last 10 years)
- Almost 1 in 5 working Londoners (17%) were paid below the London Living Wage (£8.30) in 2012. This is an increase of more than 40% over 5 years and means 600,000 people are in low-paid jobs
- The majority (57%) of working-age adults and children in poverty are now in families that work
