Considers the persistence of financial poverty, measures of the poverty gap, and the extent to which those with low financial resources are suffering enforced deprivation. This latter section of the chapter discusses deprivation indicators, looking at their application in the context of the EU. The final section of the chapter turns to the broader issue of the overall distribution of income—measures of income inequality.
