Rich people, poor people

A lot of wealth for the wealthy in the UK. Any data for the other end of the scale?

The wealth of the country's richest 1,000 is also at record high levels, now standing at £300.9 billion, up from £249.6 billion last year. This represents one of the biggest year-on-year increases since the Rich List was first published in 1989. Researchers also found a 36% rise in the amount donated to charity by the 30 most generous benefactors. More than £453 million was given away this year, compared with £333 million in 2005.
