Abstract: In 2010, heads of state and government agreed on the Europe 2020 poverty reduction target. The target is measured on the basis of a composite indicator, including income poverty, severe material deprivation and very low work intensity. In this paper, we summarise the main findings and conclusions of a series of studies carried out in the ImPRovE project, with regard to the quality of the three underlying indicators and their cross-sectional, longitudinal and dynamic relationships. By doing so, we point to relevant policy conclusions and areas for further improvement of the indicators and poverty research.
