We do not hold information on the composition of children who are in relative poverty by work status at the household level.

However, the proportion of children in relative low income, before housing costs, where at least one adult in that family is in employment for Coventry North East constituency and Coventry for the five years to 2019/20 can be extracted using the Children in Low Income Families dataset on https://stat-xplore.dwp.gov.uk/

Guidance on how to extract the information required can be found at:
