Global Multidimensional Poverty Index 2015

The Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) is a toolkit to support inclusive policy analysis and design. Adopted by a number of governments, including those of Mexico, Columbia, Tunisia and Pakistan, the index identifies multiple deprivations at the household and individual levels in the dimensions of health, education and living standards – all relevant in the context of inclusive social development and the associated policy agenda.

The quality of group childcare settings used by 3-4 year old children in Sure Start Local Programme areas and the relationship with child outcomes

The UK’s Sure Start is set to tackle the cycle of social exclusion and child poverty through improved childcare, early education, health and family support. The programme utilises panel data rather than aggregate cross-sectional data in order to track the progress of the participating children. Doing so enables area-based comparisons of the rates of progress of child development over the years, resulting in the identification of disadvantaged areas and the services in need.

The Multidimensional Continuum for the Homeless in the US is a complex continuum put in place to assist people living in shelters transfer into transitional houses, get ready for jobs, undergo drug and alcohol treatment, (re)establish contacts with families, and finally find a permanent home alongside long-term support services to help ensure they remain housed. Cutting across sectors, time and levels, this continuum is argued to be as multidimensional and transversal as the exclusion it strives to combat.
