The concept of subjective poverty developed in Chapter 15 is now extended to a multidimensional concept of poverty. Subjective poverty dimensions are constructed for e.g., health, leisure, and housing satisfaction poverty. The chapter not only examines the incidence of poverty, but also transitions from non-poverty to poverty and vice versa, the volatility of poverty, and poverty predictions. The results show that although there is a correlation between being in poverty for every domain, we cannot speak of an overall poverty concept. It is suggested that poverty should be seen as a multi-dimensional concept.
