Relative income poverty: Housing tenure, economic status and type of employment, financial year ending 2019

  1. 1. Relative income poverty Housing tenure, economic status and type of employment Financial year ending 2019
  2. 2. Housing tenure
  3. 3. People in social rented housing were more likely to be in relative income poverty (after housing costs) • 49 per cent of those living in social rented housing in Wales were in relative income poverty between 2016-17 and 2018-19 (an average over three financial years), after their housing costs such as mortgage interest payments/rent and water rates were paid. • This means they were living in a household where the total household income was less than 60 per cent of the average UK household income (as given by the median). • In comparison, 41 per cent of people in privately rented housing and 13 per cent of people in owner occupied housing were in relative income poverty after housing costs.

  5. 5. • When considering all the people in Wales in relative income poverty (700,000), most people lived in owner occupied housing (38 per cent) closely followed by those living in social rented housing (34 per cent).

  6. 6. Economic status and type of employment
  7. 7. Most children living in relative income poverty were living in working households • In the latest period (2016-17 to 2018-19), 68 per cent of children who were living in relative income poverty lived in households where at least one person was in work. This has increased for the last four periods from 60 per cent in the period 2012-13 to 2014-15. • In fact, about the same proportion of children living in relative income poverty lived in households where all adults were working compared with where one adult but not all adults were working.

  9. 9. • When considering all children in Wales, the likelihood of being in relative income poverty is much greater, and the gap is increasing for those living in a workless household compared to living in a working household (where at least one of the adults was in work). • 77 per cent of children living in a workless household were in relative income poverty compared to 22 per cent living in a working household in 2016-17 to 2018-19. • Within working households, there is also a marked difference between the likelihood of poverty for children in households where all adults work (15 per cent) compared to households where some (but not all) adults work (39 per cent), in 2016-17 to 2018-19 Over three quarters of children in workless households were living in relative income poverty
  10. 10. For working-age adults, living with people who work reduces the likelihood of living in relative income poverty • Between 2016-17 and 2018-19, working-age adults who lived in households where no-one worked were over 7 times more likely to live in relative income poverty than those who lived in households where everyone worked full-time. • However there were still an estimated 50,000 working-age adults in relative income poverty despite living in households where everyone worked full-time. • Living in a household where there is a second earner reduces the likelihood of being in relative income poverty whether that earner works part time or full time. • In households where at least one working-age adult works full time, the likelihood of being in relative income poverty is similar for households where the second earner is full time (7 per cent ) compared to those where the second earner is part time (9 per cent).

This has risen from 10 per cent in the three year period ending in 2013/14.
