Ending child poverty: the importance of income in measuring and tackling child poverty

Report that sets out Save the Children’s view of why income must remain a key part of measuring and tackling child poverty. This is based on their longstanding belief that low income is central to the experience of poverty.

The report also looks at the progress that has been made in reducing child poverty to date and argues that efforts to suggest the 2020 targets cannot be met are premature. It concludes that income based measures of poverty, including the internationally recognised relative income measure, must remain central to anti-poverty approaches.
