ABSTRACT

Conclusions from this work are relevant beyond the context of the present EU discussion on child specific indicators; they also contribute to our understanding of multidimensional poverty measures and their potential to contribute to making better policy decisions. After all, the way we define and measure poverty can have a direct impact in the way we go about fighting it. This methodology can help policymakers better visualize the most vulnerable children who are affected by multiple deprivations, and who need a more holistic approach to anti-poverty policy.
