Limited Resources

Using North Lanarkshire as an example

21% of children in North Lanarkshire live in households that experience both, a low income as well as material deprivation.

32% of children in North Lanarkshire live in a low-income household.

41% of children in North Lanarkshire live in a household in material deprivation.

On a low income but not in material deprivation (11%); may still be at risk of poverty.

In material deprivation but not on a low income (20%); may have only recently moved out of poverty.

This measure of limited resources brings together two aspects of poverty:

  • living on a low income (70% of middle incomes)
  • living in material deprivation (being unable to afford basic necessities)
