National statistics on the number of people in relative low income are set out in the annual "Households Below Average Income" publication. The number and proportion of people in relative low income is not available at local authority or constituency level in this publication because the survey sample sizes are too small to support the production of robust estimates at this geography.

3-year estimates for the South West of the proportion and number of people in relative low income are available in Table 3.17ts and Table 3.18ts in the file “3_population_timeseries_region” from this link:
