Improving the understanding of poverty and social exclusion in Europe

Using data from the European Union Statistics on Income and Living Conditions (EU-SILC), this publication reflects the results of almost 5 years of research involving data producers and data users. It aims to improve our understanding of substantive challenges facing `Social Europe’ and to contribute to the development of methods that provide new insights into the determinants and dynamics of income and living conditions.

Through in-depth analyses, it enhances our knowledge on a wide range of topics:

  • inequalities
  • role of social transfers
  • mortality risk due to poverty and social exclusion
  • intra-household variation in deprivation between-country differences in housing conditions
  • unmet medical needs
  • child deprivation
  • migrants’ living conditions
  • dynamics of in-work monetary poverty
  • deprivation and of multidimensional poverty.

The publication also puts forward robust policy-relevant indicators in these fields, including longitudinal indicators. This volume is intended both for policy-makers and statisticians and for all those concerned about the impact of economic and social policies on people’s lives and the ways in which the social dimension of Europe and its monitoring can be reinforced.
