Minimum Income Standards

We worked with the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University to analyse the number of people that fall below the Minimum Income Standard (MIS) in specific areas and which demographics are worst affected.

The MIS has been updated annually since 2008 and is the result of detailed research to discover what the British public consider to be necessary for an adequate standard of living.

Our contribution in the studies was to provide the bulk of the data used and undertake some of the analysis.

We contributed to the following reports:
Making ends meet in Birmingham: assessing the impact of the living wage and welfare reform
Making ends meet in Leicester
