  • The paper considers poverty and deprivation among two groups of low-income communities in Bombay: pavement dwellers and households living in a designated “slum” area. The author uses longitudinal data to examine relations between changes in income and changes in living conditions and concludes that poverty can be neither understood nor tackled through a simple focus on income but a more comprehensive approach including a consideration of housing and living conditions is required.
