My research will explore relative poverty changes within and between generations over time in the UK. This will largely involve secondary data analysis of the Households Below Average Income surveys. Furthermore, I will analyse anti-poverty effects of social security on specific generations by using microsimulation to estimate hypothetical policy change.
