star this property answer text <p>The information on numbers of children entering and exiting poverty is not available. However, figures for percentages of children moving in and out of poverty are collected in the Income Dynamics publication. These are available in Table 8.1, and in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2010-2011 to 2011-2012</p></td><td><p>2011-2012 to 2012-2013</p></td><td><p>2012-2013 to 2013-2014</p></td><td><p>2013-2014 to 2014-2015</p></td><td><p>2014-2015 to 2015-2016</p></td><td><p>2015-2016 to 2016-2017</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>% children entering poverty</strong></p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>7</p></td><td><p>6</p></td><td><p>7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>% children exiting poverty</strong></p></td><td><p>34</p></td><td><p>35</p></td><td><p>37</p></td><td><p>33</p></td><td><p>33</p></td><td><p>35</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The percentage of children entering poverty is the percentage of only those children who were <em>not in poverty</em> in the earlier year but who were in poverty the following year. The percentage of children exiting poverty is the percentage of only those children who were <em>in poverty </em>in the earlier year but who were out of poverty the following year. Entry and exit rates are very different (since entry / exit rates are expressed as a percentage of only those not previously in poverty / previously in poverty respectively).</p><p /><p>The threshold used is 60 per cent of median equivalised household income Before Housing Costs (BHC). Since household incomes are subject to measurement error, and the threshold is subject to sampling and measurement error, the analysis only includes ‘clear’ transitions. For an entry/exit to count, household incomes must cross the 60 per cent of median income threshold and be at least 10 per cent higher / lower than the threshold in the following year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The figures in HL15607 were shown in cash terms. The table below shows the same table in April 2019 prices, adjusted using the Consumer Prices Index and rounded to the nearest £5.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1: Total take-home pay, Child Benefit, and tax credits in April 2019 prices for a family with two adults, one of whom is aged 25 or over and works 35 hours per week and receives the National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>£ per annum</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>20,275</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>20,150</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>19,970</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>19,925</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>19,885</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>20,290</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>20,670</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>20,400</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>20,185</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2019-20</p></td><td><p>20,135</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>The table above is true for a family with a particular set of circumstances. On average real household disposable income per person is 6.7% higher than at the start of 2010 – meaning people have more money to spend than they did in 2010. Since unemployment has fallen 48% since 2010, families are also significantly more likely to have at least one person in work now than in 2010.</p><p> </p><p>The government has introduced policies to increase take home pay since 2010 including;</p><p> </p><ul><li><p>Increasing the Work Allowance in Universal Credit by £1000 from April 2019. This would provide up to an additional £630 per year for households with children and for people with disabilities;</p><p> </p></li><li><p>Doubling the amount of free childcare available to working parents of 3 and 4 year olds, saving families using the full 30 hours around £5,000 per year. This is in combination with increasing the amount that working families can claim back in childcare to 85% of their registered childcare costs each month under UC, compared to 70% on the legacy system. For families with two children this could be worth up to £13,000 a year;</p></li></ul><p> </p><ul><li><p>Increasing the Marriage Allowance from £1,190 in 2018-19 to £1,250 in 2019-20. The benefit is therefore worth up to £250 in 2019-20. It will continue to increase each time the Personal Allowance is increased.</p></li></ul>
