    Data Update: Child Poverty 2014
    The children in low income families local measure has just been published today by HMRC.

    19.4% of children are living in low income households in Fife, continuing to track just above what is happening in Scotland (18.4%)

    For the Fife Community Plan/Single Outcome Agreement, we've been tracking what's happening with child poverty in both the least deprived and most deprived areas of Fife.

    3.6% of children are living in poverty in the least deprived 20% of Fife, and 35.9% of children are living in poverty in the most deprived 20% of Fife (SIMD12). The gap between most and least deprived has widened from nine times in 2013 to ten times in 2014. This has been driven by a reduction in child poverty in both the most and least deprived areas, but a larger reduction is seen in the least deprived areas.

    A slightly different picture emerges if we look at this by SIMD16 Quintiles (new geography in KnowFife dataset). There is a twelve times gap between most deprived (36.3%) and least deprived (3.0%) (SIMD16)
