'Tracking the Distributive Effects of Budget Policy' complements our analysis of Budget 2024. It also provides further assessments of recent distributive choices:

  • a distributive analysis of all the measures announced in Budget 2024 and an assessment of the proportion of these that represent temporary income changes;
  • an assessment of the overall scale of Government support via various cost of living and energy crisis measures between April 2022 and April 2024;
  • a distributive analysis of the four Budgets delivered to date by the current Government (Budget 2021 in October 2020, Budget 2022 in October 2021, Budget 2023 in September 2022, and Budget 2024 in October 2023);
  • an assessment of how the gaps between jobseekers and those on middle and very high incomes have changed over recent years including the impact of the measures in the most recent Budget and cost of living initiatives.
