Levels of Over-Indebtedness in the UK

CACI has modelled and reported levels of over-indebtedness at national and local level every year since 2015.

By applying this model to the population, we can estimate the level of over-indebtedness in every country, region, local authority and constituency.

These estimates can be combined with data on the supply of debt advice (kindly submitted by the sector) to understand where there is the greatest need for debt advice services.

The latest figures for 2018 can be found here:

Coming Soon

  • An interactive map of over-indebtedness across the UK will be released shortly.

As a new organisation that pulls together the work of three previous entities, we will be using this transition year to review all our metrics to ensure we are measuring and tracking the best ones going forward from April 2020.

Depending on the outcome of this review we may choose to focus on other metrics in the future, and views on this are welcomed – please contact us at listening@maps.org.uk.
