The Campaign to End Child Poverty uses a "headline" calculation which does not factor in housing costs.

The group calculates that at the end of 2010/11, 3.6 million children were living below the poverty line, once rent or mortgage payments are subtracted from incomes.

But it also warns that the following locally-produced figures would be significantly higher if measured after housing costs – especially in areas where housing is particularly expensive.

Child poverty figures for Devon and Cornwall have been broken down by Parliamentary constituency. In Cornwall: Camborne and Redruth, 20%; St Austell and Newquay, 18%; St Ives, 17%; North Cornwall, 16%; Truro and Falmouth, 15%; South East Cornwall, 15%.

In Devon: Plymouth, Moor View, 25%; Plymouth, Sutton and Devonport, 25%; Torbay, 22%; Totnes, 18%; Torridge and West Devon, 14%; Tiverton and Honiton, 12%; Newton Abbot, 15%; Central Devon, 11%; East Devon, 10%; Exeter, 17%; North Devon, 14%; South West Devon, 8%.

The Isles of Scilly as a local council area returned a figure below 5%.
