Social Deprivation – The degree to which an individual or an area is deprived of services, decent housing, adequate income and local employment
(Pronounced soh-shuhl dep-ruh-vey-shuhn)
So, shall dependant people rise up out of the nation (social deprivation) or will they forever be stuck in an area deprived of basic needs?
Social deprivation is the extent to which a person, or a community, lacks what they really need to have a decent life, including work, money, housing, and services.
Social deprivation can be measured using indicators such as life expectancy, level of education and income. For instance, the life expectancy and average income of people in some areas of Northern England are lower than for people in the more affluent areas of the South East.
Causes of social deprivation can include unemployment, low wages, insufficient welfare payments and rising living costs.
