Abstract

This report is a summary of a joint CASE/DSS workshop that discussed indicators to monitor the Government's strategy to tackle poverty and social exclusion. Held on 19 July 2000, the day was comprised of a series of talks from academics, people from non-governmental organisations and officials, followed by discussion. The workshop was organised to discuss, and promote expert debate on, the pros and cons of different approaches to monitoring poverty and social exclusion. It was split into three sessions covering measurement of income poverty and deprivation, wider aspects of social exclusion and overall approaches to monitoring success, and primarily focussed on child poverty. Around 50 people attended the workshop. Most of the speakers have kindly produced papers of their talks. DSS and CASE do not necessarily share the views they have expressed. The workshop predated the second Opportunity for All report and therefore some of the papers may not reflect developments within it - or work that is currently being developed on, for example, the health inequalities indicator.
