Abstract

The main aim of this monograph is to provide a detailed analysis of poverty and deprivation in Slovakia through the lens of income poverty, subjective poverty, relative material deprivation and asset poverty. This monograph is divided into three parts. The goal of the first part is to provide an outline of selected concepts in relation to measuring poverty and deprivation. The selected studies of the living conditions (with reference to income situation) of Slovak people before and after 1989 are described in the second part. The third and key part of the monograph is intended to accomplish the main aim and comprises a close description of the methodology followed by a discussion of the main results achieved. The research is not restricted to a single dimension of poverty, but also takes into account the most important concepts that can be covered with the use of available data suitable for a study of this scope. A considerable part addresses the issue of subjective perception of poverty, perhaps the most problematic aspect of the study as the goal is to aggregate the subjective perceptions of people in an objective manner. A significant contribution of this publication is also the estimation of rates of asset poverty in Slovakia, in which the main issue is insufficient availability of data. Regarding the modern history of Slovakia, the only representative sample survey assessing the asset situation of Slovak households was conducted in 2010.
