The Minimum Income Calculator shows how much income is needed to buy the things that members of the public think everyone in the UK should be able to afford. This includes meeting essential needs (food, clothes and shelter) but also what is needed to participate in society. The figures in the calculator are based on detailed ongoing research with the public, defining and describing a minimum standard that nobody should fall below. The calculator can be adjusted to reflect your individual circumstances.
