General description
This table presents data on children in Wales living in material deprivation and low income households and pensioners in Wales living in material deprivation.
For children, this means that they live in a household that could not access a certain number of goods and services and the total household income was below 70 per cent of the UK average household income (before housing costs were paid).
For pensioners, this means that they were living in a household that could not access a certain number of goods and services. Further information on material deprivation in Wales can be obtained from the National Survey for Wales.


Data collection and calculation
This data is produced by the Department for Work and Pensions (the Households Below Average Income Team). They derive the data from responses to questions on the family resource survey.
A family with children is in low income and material deprivation if they have a material deprivation score of 25 or more and a household income below 70 per cent of contemporary median income, Before Housing Costs.
New questions about four additional material deprivation items for children were introduced into the 2010/11 FRS and from 2011/12 four questions from the original suite were removed. Figures from the old and new suite of questions are not comparable.
A family with someone aged 65 or over is in material deprivation if they have a material deprivation score of 20 or more.
This report and tables use grossing factors based on 2011 Census data, so caution should be exercised when making comparisons with reports prior to 2012/13.

These figures were revised on 28 June 2016 due to a change in the method used to adjust household income figures for inflation. The new method uses the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) in place of the Retail Prices Index (RPI). Where this led to a change to the rounded figure is marked accordingly.
