The percentages of various poor family types in the UK in 2002 are shown in the pie chart. In general, 14% of British households were insolvent in 2002, and half of these poor families consisted of single parents or single people without children.
Body paragraph 1
According to the graph, from the total proportion of the six categories—excluding all households— 26 % were headed by single parents, while 24% of single people had no children. In addition to the aforementioned groups, couples with children were the next segment of society in which poverty had a significant impact. This constituted 15%, which was 6% more than marriages without children.
Body paragraph 2
It’s interesting to observe that poverty was least prevalent among the elderly, both those who were single and those who were in a pair. While 7% of the earlier group experienced poverty, only 5% of the latter group did. Also worth mentioning is the average poverty rate for all households, which was 14%.
In conclusion, it’s interesting to note that older persons had lower rates of poverty and that married couples with children generally had better financial circumstances than married couples without children.
