About a quarter of children in our region are living in poverty, according to new research.
Among the local authorities facing the highest levels of child poverty, after housing costs are taken into account, are West Somerset with a figure of 31% and Gloucester with a figure of 28%.
The data has been published by the End Child Poverty coalition.
Other figures locally include Bristol (27%), Forest of Dean (26%), South Somerset (25%), Sedgemoor (24%) and Wiltshire (24%).
The Children's Society said the findings were "disappointing".
Without significant additional investment, there is little hope of reducing child poverty rates in coming years.
