Poverty and Wealth

Poverty & Wealth maps


P overty and wealth are two of the most important characteristics of the social landscape of London. London has some of the largest numbers of people in any one place in Europe living in poverty and is also home to many of the world’s richest people. The very large gap between the rich and poor of London is often commented on, but how is it changing and where do the majority of the best-off and worst-off people in London live? There are many different aspects to poverty and people can be rich in either income or wealth or sometimes both. Furthermore there are those who are neither rich nor poor and it can help to know where those who are average live and how that is changing over time. This section of the website already includes the series of maps shown below and will be extended by a series of images showing changes from 1971 through 2011 in the geographical distribution of the poor, the rich and the average.
