2011-2010 Urban Income Comparison

The tables below show the change in household's total weekly income between 2011 and 2010. The decline in income can be attributed to the cuts to social welfare in the last budget e.g. Child Benefit; Jobseekers Benefit etc and the introduction of the Univsersal Social Charge. Pensioners income remains unchanged due to the rate of the state pension not changing in the 2010 - 2011 period.
