Squeezed Britain: low-to-middle earners audit 2010
Matthew Whittaker: 25th November 2010
At the heart of the Foundation’s mission is the identification and analysis of challenges faced by households that find it difficult to flourish in the market economy, while consistently falling on the wrong side of eligibility for state support. The Audit represents our annual in-depth study of these issues. Original analyses of a number of large-scale surveys are supplemented with qualitative research and literature reviews to produce a detailed consideration of the condition and experiences of this group of low-to-middle earners.
The 2010 edition focuses on events in 2008-09, thereby capturing the experiences of the 11 million members of the group in the early stages of recession, across the themes of incomes, work, budgets and housing. We also consider the major challenges facing the group in the coming years, and highlight the potential ‘triple crunch’ set to further squeeze low-to-middle earner living standards in 2011 and beyond.
We regularly supplement this analysis with our own qualitative research.
