Social Metrics Commission

Dedicated to helping policymakers and the public better understand poverty and tackle it more effectively


The goal of the Social Metrics Commission is to provide a new measurement of poverty for the UK with broad, long-term political support that ensures the Government and others reduce the number of people in poverty with effective policy interventions and improve the outcomes of the millions of people who experience poverty.
