This chapter focuses on the use of material deprivation indicators in monitoring progress and setting targets to reduce poverty in Europe. It highlights some key implications of the approaches and analyses presented throughout the book for the understanding of poverty and social exclusion in Europe, and for the best ways to monitor progress in combating them. The ways in which non-monetary indicators have been used in this volume — to identify distinct dimensions of deprivation and explore how they relate to each other, to capture generalized deprivation and ‘consistent’ poverty, and to identify those vulnerable to poverty and exclusion — have important lessons for the broader monitoring of progress and assessment of strategies as the EU's Social Inclusion Process develops, as well as the way poverty and exclusion are monitored at national level.

Keywords:   material deprivation indicators, poverty reduction, European Union, social exclusion, non-monetary indicators, progress monitoring
