CSAN have submitted a response to the Government’s consultation on measuring child poverty.
The consultation will explore how a better measure of child poverty can be developed to create a more accurate picture of the reality of child poverty today.
A number of indicators could be used to calculate the multidimensional measure including; income and material deprivation, worklessness, unmanageable debt, poor housing, parental skill level, access to quality education, parental health and family stability. The consultation will also provide an opportunity for other indicators to be proposed.
