Title: Identifying deprivation profiles in Spain: a new approach
Author: Pérez Mayo, Jesús
Abstract: Generalmente se usa un enfoque indirecto basado en líneas de pobreza para medir la pobreza o la privación. sin embargo, algunos estudios han utilizado un enfoque directo para esa mediación. El objetivo de este trabajo es mejorar la identificación de la población pobre. La idea central del concepto de privación usado se relaciona con la oportunidad de tener o hacer algo. Por tanto, privación significa una incapacidad para conseguir los bienes y oportunidades comunes en su entorno. Puesto que todas las variables son categóricas, se usará el modelo de clases latentes al ser el mejor modelo para alcanzar el objetivo propuesto.Usually, an indirect approach for measuring deprivation or poverty is used with poverty lines. However, some studies have used a direct approach to measure deprivation or poverty. The aim of this paper is improving the identification of the poor people. The central point of the concept of deprivation we use is related to the opportunity to have or do something. Therefore, deprivation means an inability to get the goods, facilities and opportunities, which are usual in the household environment. Since all of the needed variables are categorical, we use the latent class model to solve this problem because is the best model to achieve this objective.
