[en] This master thesis explores the different measures of poverty and develops an alternative deprivation index which accounts for the material and financial dimensions of poverty. Indeed, the inclusion of the latter allows to increase the relation and the consistency between deprivation and other dimensions of poverty. This way, a single and well-specified measure of deprivation can be used instead of several simpler measures of poverty for which a combination scheme is needed.
Second, using the proposed deprivation index, an identification of the individuals who have a higher risk of being deprived is performed through logit regressions. In this regard, some policy recommendations are formed for groups of people presenting the highest risk.
