Abstract: This paper evaluates to what extent differences between countries in the composition of their population and in structural characteristics can explain country differences with respect to material deprivation. Our study aims to advance research on the structural dimension to the predominantly individually oriented study field of material deprivation. To facilitate an integrated approach of individual and structural context dimensions we took advantage of multilevel techniques to test differences among a large number of countries in the intensity of material deprivation. We make use of the European Union Survey on Income and Living Conditions. From our analyses, we can conclude that structural effects seem to be more relevant than individual effects to explain country differences in material deprivation.Multilevel techniquesWe can conclude that structural effects seem to be more relevant than individual effects to explain country differences in material deprivation.
