dc.description.abstractThis paper develops an axiomatic approach to the measurement ofsocial exclusion. At the individual level, social exclusion is viewed interms of deprivation of the person concerned with respect to differentfunctionings in the society. At the aggregate level we treat social exclusionas a function of individual exclusions. The class of subgroupdecomposable social exclusion measures using a set of independent axiomsis identified. We then look at the problem of ranking exclusionprofiles by exclusion dominance principle under certain restrictions.Finally, applications of decomposable and non-decomposable measuressuggested in the paper using European Union and Italian data are alsoconsidered.en_US
