Knowing who is poor, in what ways and to what extent.
The Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) is a new, gender-sensitive measure of multidimensional poverty. It’s a ground-breaking measure developed to assess deprivation at the individual level.
By collecting information about 15 key dimensions of life – including those important to a gendered understanding of poverty like time-use, voice in the community and violence – the IDM can generate granular data to inform the work of global leaders, NSOs and policy makers to leave no one behind.
This page has been developed for attendees of the High Level Political Forum at the United Nationa in New York from 9-18 July.
