Updated UK indicators

  • Concentrations of poor children:
    • first graph (over time): half of all the primary and nursery school children who are eligible for free school meals are concentrated in a fifth of the schools, a similar proportion to a decade ago.
    • second graph (by phase of education): pupils eligible for free school meals have, on average, twice as many pupils in their school eligible for free school meals.
    • third graph (by region): two-thirds of all local education primary and nursery schools in inner London have a high proportion of their children eligible for free school meals.
  • Overcrowding:
    • second graph (by tenure): overcrowding is five times as prevalent in social rented housing as in owner-occupation.
  • Mortgage re-possessions:
    • second graph (by work status): one in six heads of households with a mortgage is not in full-time work, a similar proportion to a decade ago but much higher than thirty years ago.
