Poverty is measured at the household rather than individual level. So it isn't possible to put a figure on the poverty rate for women or men. However, there are indicators here that reflect that women are less likely to be in paid work (often because of caring responsibilities) and, if they are, more likely to be low-paid. Because around 90% of single parent families are headed by women, we have included data on these family types in this section.
