    Notes:
    StatsWales includes data at a Wales level, but other geographies also published by DWP. Analysis of DWP’s Households Below Average Income data below UK level is not recommended for the 2020 to 2021 survey year. This is because a combination of smaller sample sizes and additional bias means it is not possible to make meaningful statistical assessments of trends and changes in the most recent year compared to the pre-coronavirus level. Therefore Welsh Government have not published the usual range of additional Welsh analysis of the poverty data for 2020 to 2021. For further details see the article Measures of poverty: April 2020 to March 2021.
