Child poverty in Scotland
This booklet sets out what we know about child poverty in Scotland – what it is, how common it is, what life’s like for families in poverty, and why children are in poverty. It compares this with what members of the Scottish public think about poverty and people in poverty. The public have a good understanding of some aspects of child poverty in Scotland. But there are also some mismatches between what the public think and what living in poverty is really like.
