This week, the Government has published their ‘Levelling Up White Paper’, outlining twelve missions to be achieved by 2030 across pay, employment, education and health. This comes against a backdrop of large and persistent regional inequalities that will take a long period of focus to fix.

At this event, IFS researchers put the White Paper in context by outlining the current pattern of taxes and public spending around the country and presented new work that looks at geographic inequalities in labour market outcomes (published as part of the flagship IFS Deaton Review of Inequalities, funded by the Nuffield Foundation).
