How have household incomes evolved over your lifetime? What is the gap between rich and poor? How many people are there in poverty? Which groups are most likely to face poverty? These questions are fundamental to understanding the living standards of households across the UK, and have long been the subject of research at the IFS.
IFS researchers produce new research frequently to keep the analysis of the UK income distribution up to date. Our reports analyse these trends to gain a greater understanding of why incomes have been changing in recent years.
