Policymakers are increasingly interested in the ways in which people are able to escape from poverty. This report reviews the existing evidence on this topic and finds that there is considerable income mobility from one year to the next and, consequently, movement among individuals into and out of poverty. However, most people do not move very far up or down the income distribution. The report provides a succinct review of the comprehensive range of research that has been undertaken recently on the topic, highlighting the key means of escape from poverty for major policy groups such as young people, children and families, and older people. It concludes with a summary of important gaps in the research evidence on ladders out of poverty.
