Responding to the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) report on living standards, poverty and inequality in the UK, which was funded by JRF, Head of Poverty Research Chris Goulden said:

Authoritative new research published today (30 June) shows that the cost of what the public thinks is essential has soared 28 per cent since 2008 while average earnings have risen only 9 per cent. The analysis shows that even as real wages start to rise again, low-earning families with children are unlikely to be able to close the gap between their income and their needs, due to low pay, rising prices and reduced government support.
