The figures reveal the wide disparity in poverty rates across the UK, between regions and striking variations even within regions. Child poverty is the highest in large cities, particularly in London, Birmingham and Manchester. Among the twenty parliamentary constituencies with the highest levels of childhood poverty, seven are located in London, three in Birmingham, and three in Manchester.
The parliamentary constituencies with the lowest levels of child poverty are West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine and Gordon with less than 10 percent.
