This research, for the Scottish Government, sought to identify different experiences of poverty amongst low-income households in Scotland using analysis of data from a large-scale social survey. The research used Latent Class Analysis, a data segmentation technique, to uncover thirteen types of poverty spread across three pre-determined life stages: families with children, working age without children, and older age.
