London's Poverty Profile has been created by one of London's largest charitable funders, Trust for London, and the independent think tank, New Policy Institute.
More Londoners on temporary contracts
A new indicator has been added to the LPP which shows the number of Londoners employed through temporary contracts since 2004.
It shows an increase of 37,000 temporary workers between the crash (2008) and the latest available data (2013). Whilst this is broadly in line with overall job creation, the major change since 2008 is that the large majority of those workers are now working temporarily because they cannot find a permanent job.
