UK: Exploring the relationship between riot areas and deprivation an IPPR analysis

Source: Institute for Public Policy Research (UK)

Debate has now begun on the factors that underpinned this week’s riots. As the political post-mortem gains momentum, IPPR has started to analyse other factors that may help us to understand what happened.

While not offering an excuse, new analysis from IPPR explores the relationship between different indicators of poverty and deprivation and where the violence and looting took place. It’s important to look at some of the local factors – particularly the economic wellbeing of a community. In this analysis, we look at unemployment rates, youth unemployment, levels of educational attainment and child poverty.
