Inequalities and disadvantage in London – focus on disability
Trust for London (TfL) research found that, in 2007/8 and in 2012/13, individuals who experienced a disability had a lower income than those who do not, across the income distribution, both in London and in the rest of the country.
TfL best estimates suggest that in 2007/08 the poorest 10% of individuals who reported a disability had a weekly equivalized household income after housing costs (but before other expenses such as food, heating and transport) of less than £141. By 2012/13, this figure had fallen to £100. This amounts to an apparent fall of around 29% (£41 a week) – double the equivalent figure for Londoners without disabilities and more pronounced than elsewhere in the UK.
