Building public support for eradicating poverty in the UK /

by Delvaux, Joke | Joseph Rowntree Foundation | Rinne, Sini.

Publisher: York, U.K. Joseph Rountree Foundation 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: INTO AND OUT OF WORK SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This study looks at successful ways of building public support for tackling UK poverty, including the use of real life stories, for example; explores how organisations measure the effectiveness of their initiatives; finds that only few initiatives explicitly aim to build public support for the UK poverty agenda and these initiatives tend to change perceptions and behaviour rather than attitudes; and argues that the term poverty needs to be clarified, and possibly avoided when first engaging people.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The End of Destitution /

by Gazeley, Ian | Institute for the Study of Labor | Newell, Andrew T.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The paper presents a statistical generalisation, to working families in the whole of Britain, of Rowntree's finding that absolute poverty declined dramatically in York between 1899 and 1936. We use poverty lines devised by contemporary social investigators and two relatively newly-discovered data sets. We estimate an almost complete elimination of absolute poverty among working households for the whole of the Britain between 1904 and 1937. We offer a number of pieces of corroborative evidence that give support to our findings. We decompose the poverty reduction into the effects of two proximate causes, of roughly equal importance, the decline in family size and the rise of real wages. We conclude with some speculation about the deeper causes of the decline.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
