A comparison of multidimensional deprivation characteristics between natives and immigrants in Luxembourg

No 2008-14, IRISS Working Paper Series from IRISS at CEPS/INSTEAD
This paper applies a multidimensional approach to poverty measurement based on fuzzy set theory, and its decomposition properties, in order to measure the deprivation level in Luxembourg and to identify the different characteristics of poverty between natives and immigrants (knowing that almost 40% of the population in Luxembourg are immigrants). The database used in this study is the 2006 wave of the Panel Socio-Economique Liewen zu Lëtzebuerg (PSELL-3) survey.
