« Social Statistics, Poverty and Social Exclusion: perspectives from Quebec, Canada and Abroad »

Montreal, Canada
November 30th to December 2nd, 2011

The main objective of the International conference on Social Statistics, Poverty and Social Exclusion: perspectives from Quebec, Canada and Abroad is to take stock of the state of current research and identify knowledge gaps:

  • How can poverty data be used to compare the situation in different industrialized nations?
  • What are the scope and the limitations of such comparisons?
  • How can we define the main dimensions and develop appropriate indicators of social exclusion?
  • How can we develop process indicators that will allow us to recognize situations of exclusion?
  • How can social statistics be used to study the influencing factors and the consequences of all dimensions of poverty?
  • How can statistics be used to study the financial and social cost of poverty, material deprivation, the use of rights, life courses and solutions?
  • How can we use statistics to build a score card that accounts for all those dimensions to evaluate the outcomes of the Act to Combat Poverty and Social Exclusion?

The Conference aims to encourage international exchanges in order to document the diversity of situations and also wants to generate debate between the many different actors involved: organizations that produce statistics, researchers and users.
