The Relationship Between Income and Deprivation : A Dynamic Perspective

[fre] Les analyses fondées sur un seuil monétaire de pauvreté ne permettent pas toujours de repérer les ménages atteints par la privation ou l'exclusion. L'analyse d'une enquête irlandaise de grande taille a permis de montrer que le revenu cou­rant des ménages influence fortement les niveaux de privation, mais on y décèle également d'autres aspects importants de la situation courante des ménages et du cheminement antérieur qui les y a amenés. Il semble également essentiel de distinguer plusieurs dimensions dans la comparaison des seuils de privation et des niveaux de revenu qui permettent de mesurer la pauvreté. [eng] Income poverty lines may fail to distinguish households experiencing depriva tion/exclusion Analysing large sample of Irish households we find that current income is an important influence on deprivation levels but so are many other aspects of current situation and how it arrived there It is also impor tant to distinguish different dimensions in using deprivation indicators with income to measure poverty
