"Poverty is more than the lack of income and resources to ensure a sustainable livelihood. Its manifestations include hunger and malnutrition, limited access to education and other basic services, social discrimination and exclusion as well as the lack of participation in decision-making. Economic growth must be inclusive to provide sustainable jobs and promote equality." (United Nations, n.d.)

"The Individual Deprivation Measure or IDM Program is a partnership between the Australian National University, International Women’s Development Agency and the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. (IDM, 2018) The aim of the IDM is to offer a "gender-sensitive and multi-dimensional measure of deprivation.... to overcome the current limitations of poverty data by getting below the household level to provide individual-level assessment of deprivation". For more information go to the IDM page on the Australian Sustainable Development Goals portal.
The Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) is a new, gender-sensitive and multidimensional measure of poverty. It has been developed to assess deprivation at the individual level and overcome the limitations of current approaches which measure poverty at the household level.
