We illustrate with Irish data how this might be done, paying particular attention to how appropriate indicators of deprivation are to be selected. The results show that employing both income and deprivation criteria rather than income alone can make a substantial difference to both the extent and composition of measured poverty. This highlights the restrictive nature of poverty conceived in terms of exclusion rather than minimum rights to resources.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Journal:||Journal of Social Policy||Volume:||22||Issue:||2||Start page:||141||End page:||172||Copyright (published version):||Copyright Cambridge University Press 1993||Subject LCSH:||Poverty--Ireland
