This chapter brings together the analysis presented in chapters Two and Six to examine the relationship between deprivation and poverty in more depth. It compares the two concepts in terms of how well each is able to identify those who are most disadvantaged. It uses the relationship of poverty and deprivation to several indicators of well-being to assess how well each indicator captures a situation that is harmful to those who experience it. It examines the overlap between who is poor but not deprived, who is deprived but not poor, and who is both deprived and poor in order to show that they differ empirically. It emphasises that this third (overlap) category forms the basis for the measure of consistent poverty that is explained and applied for the first time in Australia using the CUPSE data.
