Child poverty figures released by the Government in June 2013 show:
- In 2011/12, 2.3 million children in the UK were classed as being in poverty
- That means 17% of children were in poverty (before housing costs)
- After housing costs were taken into account, 3.5 million children were in poverty
- That amounts to 27% of children in the UK
There was no percentage change from the 2010/11 figures on both scales (before and after housing costs).
