Abstract

Income poverty is commonly encountered in developing and developed countries, but in the latter case the incidence rate is lower. Beyond income, the health dimension is recalling the attention of a wide number of studies about poverty. With the aim of more richer description of poverty in Europe, we adopt a multimensional approach, considering as measure of well-being not only income but also health. Using the Receiver Operating Characteristics curve ROC approach, we will examine the the correlation between income and health, to understand if a multidimensional approach is really useful to describe better the phenomenon and we will compute some indexes of multidimensional poverty.
