The AROPE indicator of risk of poverty or social exclusion contains a multi-dimensional view of poverty or social exclusion by accounting for the population that finds itself in at least one of the following three situations: 1) below the poverty risk threshold; 2) suffering severe material deprivation; 3) with low work intensity in the household.
How can we put an end to the intergenerational transmission of poverty? We
analyse proposals that defend universal child benefit and other policies
that propose selective benefits for poor families with children.
In Spain barely 3.3% of the total of social transfers in the year 2016
targeted children, against the European average of 9%. However, this study
shows that it is the most effective way of eradicating poverty.
