Nearly half of black UK households are living in poverty

The Social Metrics Commission have found that black and minority ethnic (BAME) households in the UK are more likely to live in poverty resulting in a greater exposure "to job losses and pay cuts caused by the coronavirus pandemic".

According to the report, there has also been an increase in the number of people living in poverty since last year, with approximately 4.5 million children experiencing 'deep poverty'.

This article could be used for a number of areas within sociology, including: Work, Poverty and Welfare (nature, existence and persistence of poverty in contemporary society, distribution of poverty, wealth and income between different social groups), racism, ethnicity, and Families and Households (relative deprivation).
