Project Details

Description

The main purpose of this project is to build upon the experience gained by UK academics over the past 40 years to help develop a methodology and questionnaire which can be used to measure poverty and social exclusion in Taiwan. Poverty will be measured using a relative deprivation approach which combines indicators of low income with deprivation measures which are culturally relevant and appropriate. The project aims to:

• enhance collaboration between researchers in Britain and in Taiwan by developing a poverty and social exclusion questionnaire for use in Taiwan.
• pilot the questionnaire on 100 households.
• develop a research grant proposal for a national survey of poverty and social exclusion in Taiwan.
