Source: HBSC survey 2001/02

Description: This item was originally devised to measure extreme poverty in terms of deprivation and hardship related to socio-economic status.  However, analyses of the 2001/02 survey data has revealed the potential of this item to be an indicator of a more subtle phenomenon that could be linked to other health inequality issues such as neglect, household disorganisation, family dysfunction.
