WP 07-19 - A comparative analysis of deprivation among the elderly in Belgium
Gijs Dekkers and
Karel Van den Bosch
Working Papers from Federal Planning Bureau, Belgium
This Working Paper identifies the characteristics that explain severe material deprivation in Belgium, while making a distinction between people aged below 65 and those aged 65 or above. Severe material deprivation has decreased for both groups. Young people are more impacted than the elderly. Although there is a clear link between income and deprivation, the overlap between individuals identified as at risk of poverty and those as severely deprived is far from perfect. The correlation between income poverty and deprivation is weaker for the old group than for the young.
