Abstract

For the period 2000 - 2007, married women living in London with some education had considerably higher chances of getting out of poverty for the first time. This reflects that, in the UK, transitions out of poverty might be determined by personal decisions when poverty is identified with a monetary-relative threshold. In consequence, policy makers must design economic incentives for the poor and influence the reduction of poverty through market mechanisms.
