We are currently analysing the distributional effects of the welfare reforms announced in the emergency Budget and the spending review 2010, including the introduction of a universal credit. The analysis, which will include the impact on household incomes split by income decile, will be made available when we publish our welfare reform White Paper in the next few weeks.
