Updated UK indicators

  • Low income and council tax:
    • first graph (over time): more than half of all low-income households are paying full Council Tax, much higher than a decade ago.
    • second graph (by age group): 7 million people in England and Wales are living in low-income households where the household is paying full Council Tax.
    • third graph (by household type): the vast majority of low-income working-age families where someone is working pay full Council Tax.
  • Longstanding illness/disability – working-age adults:
    • first and second graphs (over time): around a quarter of adults aged 45-64 report a longstanding illness or disability which limits their activity.
    • third graph (by income): two-fifths of all adults aged 45-64 on below-average incomes have a limiting longstanding illness or disability, more than twice the rate for those on above-average incomes.
  • Longstanding illness/disability – older people:
    • first and second graphs (over time): a third of adults aged 65-74, and half of adults aged 75 and over, report a limiting longstanding sickness or disability. Both proportions are similar to a decade ago.
    • third graph (by income): for those aged 65-74, the proportion with a limiting longstanding illness or disability increases as income decreases. The differences by income are less for those aged 75 and over.
  • Overcrowding:
    • first graph (over time): around one in twenty people live in overcrowded conditions, somewhat higher than a decade ago.
