Identifying social exclusion

Identifying social exclusion

(p.211) nine Identifying social exclusion
Down and out

This chapter presents new results on the incidence of three dimensions of exclusion in Australia: disengagement; exclusion from basic services (public and private); and economic exclusion. It examines the profile of exclusion more systematically, focusing on the role of socioeconomic factors such as gender, age, family type, and economic status. It focuses its attention on the incidence of multiple exclusion (within and across domains) and the characteristics of those in deep (multi-dimensional) exclusion. It explores the incidence of exclusion among groups known to be susceptible to poverty as a way of demonstrating that poverty and exclusion are different, and confirms this using overlap analysis. It examines the links between exclusion and perception of well-being as a way of confirming that exclusion is an enforced condition that has negative consequences for well-being.

Keywords:   disengagement, basic services, economic exclusion, socioeconomic factors, multiple exclusion, multi-dimensional exclusion, poverty, well-being
