Updates made to the Poverty Monitor on 20th July 2022

Following the publication of the Greater Manchester Poverty Monitor in May 2022, we made the following updates in July 2022:

  • Added a ‘Poverty profile builder’ and accompanying guidance to users. The profile builder aims to support users to create local poverty profiles for areas of the city region they are interested in, utilising the data provided on the Monitor. You can find this via the Notes and resources for users.
  • Added local authority (and parliamentary constituency) level data for child poverty rates measured after housing costs. This can be found on the Child poverty theme page.
  • Published four short films (Stories behind the statistics) bringing together the views, experiences and perspectives of community commissioners from the Tameside and Trafford Poverty Truth Commissions. These films bring the statistics detailed in the Monitor to life. They cover four themes: Debt, Education, Housing and Labour market. The films can be found here
  • We held an event on 19thJuly where we detailed the Monitor to 100 delegates and discussed local responses to poverty. A recording of the event can be accessed here.
