! JRF - UK Poverty Report 2018
The Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) has published a report on UK poverty in 2018. This annual report examines the nature and scale of UK poverty and the effect of the UK poverty rate on the people gripped by it. Some of the key findings include:
- Child poverty has been rising since 2011/12.
- 4.1 million children are living in poverty; a rise of 500,000 in the last 5 years
- 4 million workers are living in poverty; a rise of 500,000 in the last 5 years
- In-work poverty has risen at a faster rate than employment, driven almost entirely by increasing poverty in working parents.

! 2016 Household Projections - by household type
The 2016-based Household Projections for England by household type were published yesterday and are available to download from this link: Household Projections for England – household type projections: 2016 based.
The 2016-based household projections provide statistics on the potential future number of households in England and its local authorities up to 2041. They show the household numbers that would result if the assumptions based in previous demographic trends in population and household formation were to be realised in practice.
Household population projections are published every two years. These latest projections supersede the 2014-based household projections.
In brief the projections show that:
- - The number of one person households in St. Helens is projected to increase by 21% between 2016 and 2041, which compares to a 26% increase in England.
- - In St. Helens, by 2041, there will be 29,000 one person households.
- - The number of households with dependent children is projected to broadly remain the same between 2016 and 2041, with around 24% of households having dependent children.
- - Almost all the projected increase in households in St. Helens by 2041 will be due to increases in one person or multiple adult households without dependent children. This increase will be largely driven by increases in the number of adults aged over 75 years, and living on their own. This pattern differs slightly from England, which projects an increase in the over 65 population living alone.
- - By 2041, the number of households in St. Helens with people aged over 85 years is expected to more than double from 3,000 to 7,000 households.
