Income and Children in London

April 7, 2015

London has highly concentrated wealth in its central boroughs, with average incomes in Kensington and Chelsea and the City of London at £137,000 and £117,000, respectively. Barking and Dagenham has the lowest average income: £22,800. Income in London is highly, inversely correlated with the number of children per adult. Barking and Dagenham has almost twice the number of children per adult (.33) compared to Kensington and Chelsea (.17). While the idea that wealthier families have fewer children has been extensively studied, the scale of difference here is quite striking.
