Last year The Guardian newspaper created a US Poverty Map.
Using data from the 2010 U.S. census the map shows the percentage of people living in poverty in each state. The map also includes layers to display the number of workers in each state earning below the minimum wage, those without medical insurance and the median wage in each state.
Today The Guardian has created a similar Poverty Map of England. The England Map, using data from credit ratings company Experian, displays poverty indicators for each of the 326 local authorities.
The map includes layers to view child poverty, the risk of long-term unemployment and low income in each authority.
