Poverty and inequality data for Harrow
Harrow is an outer London borough in the north west of the capital. It is an ethnically diverse area, with nearly two thirds of its population from BME communities. Harrow's strongest indicator is young people's qualifications: less than a quarter of 19 year olds (24.9%) do not have Level 3 qualifications (A level equivalent) – the lowest rate in London.
However, Council Tax for low earners in Harrow has risen by £384 since the law changed in 2013 – the highest of any London borough. And Harrow is one of only two boroughs where the amount of affordable housing has decreased. There are 102 fewer affordable homes in Harrow than there were in 2013.
The rankings below show how Harrow is performing on key poverty and inequality indicators, in comparison with all 32 London boroughs. The first section gives a snapshot from the latest data: the deeper the red, the worse the problem; those coloured green are in the top half of London boroughs, which are performing better.
The circles show whether the issue is getting better or worse in comparison to previous period. Where there is no change, the circle is orange. Where there is no comparative data, the circle is grey.
