Australian Launch of the Individual Deprivation Measure Video
To address gaps in existing poverty measures, IWDA and our research partners spent four years developing a better way to measure poverty. Using the inputs of poor women and men from across six countries, we developed a new tool for measuring poverty, the Individual Deprivation Measure, to capture:
- The poverty of individuals, not just households
- Differences in how women and men experience poverty – including within the household
The IDM was launched at the Australian Council for International Development Chairs’ and CEOs’ Dinner on 22 October 2014.
