Will Children of Social Care Services Users be Future Users? Results of a Pilot Research in Rome

Abstract

Book chapter. This paper illustrates some results of a primary data collection survey on the poverty of social care services users in a district of Rome, with a specific focus on households with children1. The research is based on an original model of multidimensional analysis of poverty that considers a broad set of life domains (house, community, health, emotions, knowledge, income). This model, called MACaD (Multidimensional Analysis of Capability Deprivation) was developed within the theoretical framework of the Capability Approach (A. Sen, 1979, 1997, 2007 and M. Nussbaum, 2000, 2011) and is focused on the measurement of the degree of individually achieved functioning in each life domain with respect to the possession of tangible and intangible goods according to a specific multidimensional index.
