The Welsh Assembly has published 50 indicators mapping social exclusion. The report illustrates that many factors are concentrated in the Valleys, but also shows social exclusion in other parts of the country in pockets of urban deprivation. The figures show that 10 per cent of adults in Wales reported being treated for depression or anxiety, high truancy rates and the fact that one in five people of working age has no recognised qualifications.About half the households in Wales have an annual income of less than £10,000.
