London's Poverty Profile has been created by one of the London's largest charitable funders, Trust for London, and the independent think tank, New Policy Institute.
- Women are particularly vulnerable to poverty, partly as a result of the gender pay gap and caring responsibilities.
- Women working full-time are paid less an hour than men for doing work of equivalent value. This figure is higher for ethnic minority women and those working part-time.
- Because of the small size of samples in surveys, there is a lack of reliable data to compare men and women in London, particularly at sub-regional and borough level.
