In this paper, three dimensions of financial disadvantage are investigated: income poverty (both before and after-housing); subjective poverty; and financial stress. For this paper, being in income poverty is defined as living in a household with an income of less than 50 per cent of median equivalised disposable household income. The equivalence scale used was the modified Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) scale. Both before and after-housing measures were analysed. Subjective poverty is based simply on whether respondents view themselves as poor or very poor.Availability: (1)
