A multidimensional poverty index for youth
As part of the indicator project we have constructed a multidimensional poverty index for youth, applying the Alkire Foster method and the Census 2011. The index is intended to complement the dashboard of indicators by offering a single summary measure that captures the multiple deprivations experienced simultaneously by poor youth.
