Shatakshee Dhongde, associate professor at the School of Economics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, was invited to present her research on “Multi-dimensional Deprivation in the U.S.” at the United Nations on March 22, 2018. The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) plans to monitor multidimensional poverty in developed countries and invited Dhongde to talk about her research on poverty in the U.S.

Dhongde’s paper, published in Social Indicators Research, is the first to estimate multidimensional deprivation in the U.S. during the Great Recession. Results from the analysis indicate that the proportion of the population that is multidimensional deprived averages about 15 percent and exceeds the prevalence of official income poverty. Lack of education, severe housing burden, and lack of health insurance were some of the dimensions in which Americans were most deprived.  

The paper has been widely cited since its publication in 2017 and its findings have been highlighted in media outlets such as Futurity , News Wise, and the National Public Radio.

The School of Economics is part of the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
