Definition: Current lifestyle deprivation index

Living conditions

The current lifestyle deprivation (CLSD) index combines items from basic and secondary dimensions into one simplified scale of non-monetary deprivation. This is used in Chapter 7 to investigate persistent deprivation and poverty risk. Differences in the relevance of particular items across Member States are taken into account in the weighted version.
