Careful measures: an exploration of the sex and gender dimensions of a deprivation index

Explores whether women and men (girls and boys) have the same experiences of material and social deprivation and of health, and how these similarities or differences are accounted for in terms of indicator development and structure. Examines the opportunities for and the limitations of one deprivation index to represent the different experiences of men and of women in Canada by conducting a sex- and gender-based analysis (SGBA) of the indicators included in the index and calculating the index by sex using Statistics Canada's Census data for Vancouver, Winnipeg and Halifax. Results suggest that a deprivation index may not apply to men and women equally, and point to the need for thorough exploration of sex and gender differences associated with components of multivariate indices to ensure that they reflect the experience of men and women.
