In 2012, the final report of the Riots, Communities and Victims panel said that "over half of respondents to the Panel's Neighbourhood Survey believe there is a growing gap between rich and poor in their local area".
How can inequality be measured? Is inequality growing? How does the UK compare with other countries? Stella's talk will look at how statistics can be used to help answer these questions. This will include consideration of how to compare data from different countries and different times in a standard way that makes it easier to see what is going on.
Stella is the MEI Programme Leader for Curriculum and the current Royal Statistical Society Guy Lecturer.
