Online lookup tool for parishes in England
A new online tool, developed by Church Urban Fund with assistance from the Church of England’s Research and Statistics division, provides easy access to information on a range of poverty-related indicators for parishes in England. Indicators include poverty rates (for children, working age adults, and pensioners), life expectancy, lack of qualifications, lone parenthood, and social housing, as well as descriptive statistics on ethnic diversity and older population size.
The aim of this tool is to help churches engage with these issues by finding out more about the extent of poverty in their communities and how this compares with other parishes locally and nationally.
The Poverty in Numbers report presents some of the most striking findings and information on how to access our online tool.
