We recently published the concluding research from the Social Policy in a Cold Climate programme, an analysis of the Coalition's Social Policy Record. These complimented an earlier set of reports covering the Labour governmentâ€™s social policy record.
This programme examined the effects of the major economic and political changes in the UK since 2007, particularly their impact on the distribution of wealth, poverty, inequality and social mobility. The analysis includes policies and spending decisions from the last Labour government, including the beginning of the financial crisis, as well as those made by the Coalition government since May 2010. All publications can be found here.
Further detailed tables and breakdowns, and an interactive web-tool for their analysis are available on: www.casedata.org.uk.
If you missed the launch event you can watch the overview summary presentation with Ruth Lupton and John Hills here: The Coalitionâ€™s Social Policy Record: Policy, Spending and Outcomes 2010-2015
The breakout sessions are also available to watch: Employment, Tax, and Benefits , Health, Social care and Housing and Early years, Schools, and Further and Higher Education.
Related reports which assess economic inequality in the UK and London using the latest available data, were published in March.
