The report identifies that poverty is prevalent in suburbia, and worryingly high and increasing in some city suburbs. The findings show that there are approximately 6.8 million people in poverty in the suburbs of England and Wales, and that the gap in concentrations of poverty is narrowing between urban centres and suburbs in many of our major cities. It analyses how poverty has changed since the recession and who is at most risk of poverty by place in regard to age, housing and household constitution, employment and wage levels, and access to benefits and services. The report also looks at how poverty in suburbia could grow in the future and calls for a suburban renaissance.
