We are pleased to be releasing a new monthly publication called Community Data Watch.

Community Development Halton (CDH) has recently released a report on income inequality and poverty in Halton. In this edition of Community Data Watch we have added a spatial dimension by examining the geographic distribution of poverty in the community using data from the 2021 Census. The intention of this spatial analysis of data is to provide insights into the dynamics of poverty and its impact on both individuals and the community. It raises public awareness of income and social inequalities and serves as a communication tool to facilitate community discussions, gather input from residents, and involve them in the decision-making process regarding the types of services needed.

The full report can be found here: Community Data Watch January 2024: Where is Poverty in Halton?
