Report Shetland Poverty. What are we going to do about it? in Shetland News Posted November 28, 2009 Well I've read that article, interesting but also vague. You know statistics. I decided to look up the postcodes (on the site below) used to justify their statistics over such a diverse and unique a place as Sheltand guess what....their study only gathered info from ZE2 9DU, one postcode to cover everything from Lerwick to Unst?! You're talking about two different studies aren't you? One by the government one by the council. The council one discussed in the paper was very specific in terms of the areas it found poverty to be worst.
