Living standards, poverty and inequality in the UK : 2015 by Chris Belfield( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each year, the government produces statistics about the distribution of income in the UK ('Households Below Average Incomes' or HBAI). This report analyses these statistics and digs deeper to explore the driving forces behind key trends in living standards, inequality and poverty. The main measure of income used in the analysis is net household income, which is 'equivalised' to take account of differences in household size and composition. The report measures each household's total income from all sources (including earnings, self-employment income, pensions, benefits and tax credits) minus income tax, National Insurance contributions and council tax

Living standards, poverty and inequality in the UK : 2016 by Chris Belfield( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this report is the distribution of household income in the UK. We assess the changes to average incomes, income inequality and poverty that occurred in the latest year of data (2014-15), and put these in historical context using comparable data spanning the last 50 years. The analysis draws upon the data underlying the latest figures from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)'s Households Below Average Income (HBAI) series, published on 28 June 2016. The HBAI series is derived from the Family Resources Survey (FRS), a survey of more than 20,000 households in the UK that asks detailed questions about income from a range of sources. (...)

Living standards, poverty and inequality in the UK 2015 by James Browne( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How have household incomes evolved since the onset of the financial crisis? How has the gap between rich and poor changed? How have living standards changed over time for different parts of the population? How many people are in poverty and which groups are most likely to face poverty? Each year, the government produces statistics about the distribution of income in the UK ('Households Below Average Incomes' or HBAI), which help answer these questions and many more. This report is the fourteenth in an annual series published by the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) that analyses these statistics and digs deeper to explore the driving forces behind key trends in living standards, inequality and poverty.
Living standards, poverty and inequality in the UK by Institute for Fiscal Studies (Great Britain)( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the latest in the series of flagship IFS annual reports on living standards, poverty and inequality in the UK. Funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the report analyses the official data on the distribution of household income in the UK, up to including the latest data for 2014-15 which were released on Tuesday 28 June 2016. Using the data underlying these statistics, this report analyses: changes in average incomes and the drivers of income growth; how the recovery in the labour market has affected the gap between the rich and poor; how inequalities between children's material circumstances have been changing; trends in income poverty, and how they differ between groups such as working and workless households, children and pensioners; what more we can learn about living standards by looking beyond household income
Money or fun? why students want to pursue further education by Chris Belfield( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study students' motives for educational attainment in a unique survey of 885 secondary school students in the UK. As expected, students who perceive the monetary returns to education to be higher are more likely to intend to continue in full-time education. However, the main driver is the perceived consumption value, which alone explains around half of the variation of the intention to pursue higher education. Moreover, the perceived consumption value can account for a substantial part of both the socio-economic gap and the gender gap in intentions to continue in full-time education

The longer-term costs and benefits of different initial teacher training routes by Rebecca Allen( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Teacher recruitment and retention are increasingly challenging for schools as the pools of graduates in key subjects decline and pupil numbers grow. This report reveals around 40% of teachers who begin their initial training are not in a state school job five years later. That means of 35,000 or so individuals training to become teachers each year some 14,000 are not teaching five years later. Initial teacher training is expensive, costing an average of £23,000 per trainee taking into account costs to government and schools. The high drop-out rate means that on average more than £38,000 is spent on training for every teacher still in post five years after completing training. This research, funded by the Nuffield Foundation, also shows how routes into teaching have changed in recent years, and looks at the costs, benefits and retention rates for each route. School-led routes have grown quickly, with "School Direct" accounting for around one-third of trainees in 2015-16. Teach First has also expanded now accounting for 5% of entrants, although more than 40% of trainees are still trained through traditional university-led postgraduate courses

The costs and benefits of different initial teacher training routes( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report provides the first evidence of the relative cost-effectiveness of different routes into teaching in England, describing and empirically estimating the costs and benefits of different routes into teaching while accounting, as far as possible, for the selection of teachers with different characteristics into each route. Our specific research questions are grouped into three strands: recruitment, training and retention. This report summarises our findings for the first two strands: the costs and benefits for central government and schools related to recruitment and training, which can be thought of as short-term costs and benefits, answering the following questions:Recruitment - What are the characteristics of potential teachers who choose this route? What are the characteristics of schools that choose to take trainee teachers via this route? Training - What are the total costs of university-based components of training? What indirect costs are imposed on schools - for example, through supervision and mentoring? What are the benefits to schools - for example, through trainees' contribution to teaching and recruitment? What are the short-term differences in the effectiveness of departments receiving trainee teachers (in terms of pupils' academic attainment)?

Long-run trends in school spending in England by Chris Belfield( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The government has committed to freezing school spending per pupil in cash terms in England up to 2019-20. It has also committed to introducing a national funding formula for schools in England from 2017 onwards. In this report, we provide historical context for these changes by showing how spending per pupil has evolved since the 1970s - comparisons that were previously unavailable. We also provide the first estimates of total school spending received across different cohorts over time and the variation within individual cohorts
