Dynamic Computation of Multidimensional Deprivation

The multidimensional deprivation literature has been mainly static in nature, examining deprivations at a particular point in time.

However, the availability of panel surveys in recent times provides researchers with the means to examine dynamic considerations of deprivation and how it changes through time. Using a dynamic approach, this project attempts to distinguish between the ‘duration’ and ‘persistence’ of deprivation. Ankita Mishra (in collaboration with Prof. Ranjan Ray) use LSIC and LSAC panel surveys to compare Australian indigenous children with Australian children   on various dimensions of deprivation to identify those dimensions where deprivation is recurring and persistent. This identification will help with the targeting of policy intervention by the Australian government.
