Key points

  • Working-age adults have experienced rising poverty in London over the past decade.
  • Working-age adults without children are particularly vulnerable to poverty.
  • Many of the indicators on this site are relevant to this age group - such as employment rates, low pay and out-of-work benefits.

Working age adults are defined as those between 16 and 65 year olds. It therefore includes 16-24 year olds.
