This paper contributes to the literature on the multidimensional assessment of the well-being of the worse off individuals, which is scarce for Spain. We document and characterise monetary poverty and multidimensional deprivation using a new database (PAD) for Catalonia. The econometric methodology we employ allows a joint analysis of poverty and deprivation, which has not been seen before. Our empirical findings should be informative for social policy. We provide new evidence on old and new relations between situations of economic disadvantage and individual characteristics, some of which invite the reconsideration of old conceptions.
