London’s Poverty Profile, Poverty Data

London’s Poverty Profile, Poverty Data | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
London’s Poverty Profile provides evidence on and insight into poverty and inequality in London. It shines a light on these issues to prompt action from local and national government, the third sector, faith groups, practitioners, experts, businesses, the public and indeed anyone who cares about making London a fairer city to live in.

Despite living in a global city with a level of economic performance to be proud of, many Londoners struggle to make ends meet, secure good quality affordable housing, or tie down the decent work they need to lift themselves above the poverty line. As a result, poverty is higher in London than in any other region or country in the UK. Across a wide range of indicators, there is a gulf in outcomes between Londoners on low incomes and those who are better off, both in the capital and across the rest of the UK.

What the UK population will look like by 2061 under hard, soft or no Brexit scenarios

With the British parliament still deadlocked, the UK’s future Brexit strategy is not yet set in stone. Whatever path the UK chooses from here will have an impact on the future of British immigration policy – and therefore on the size of the population.

If Boris Johnson really wants to improve the UK’s buses, he should look to Switzerland | Lynn Sloman | Opinion | The Guardian

If Boris Johnson really wants to improve the UK’s buses, he should look to Switzerland | Lynn Sloman | Opinion | The Guardian | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Finally, after decades of disastrous, or at best feeble, bus policy, Boris Johnson’s pledge of £5bn to improve buses suggests that at long last the importance of this neglected mode of transport is being recognised. The prime minister said in parliament that there would be more services, including at evenings and weekends, and simpler, cheaper and more convenient fares, as well as more bus lanes and zero-carbon buses. But while £5bn could build quite a lot of bus lanes, it will not have much impact on fares and services unless it is accompanied by countrywide regulation of local public transport.
