Gender and ethnicity remain two of the most important factors influencing individuals economic well being. However, a person's likelihood of being in poverty cannot simply be 'read off' from their gender or ethnicity. This briefing paper analyses the statistics relating to gender and ethnicity and highlights the complex intersection of the two. Some of the implications for policy makers are also drawn out.
