The aim of this study is to analyse multidimensional deprivation in Italy at household level in the period 2005-2009 using data collected in the Survey on Income and Living Conditions (EUSILC). As alternative to the traditional indices, we propose the counting approach that fits well with ordinal and categorical variables. Dominance conditions are introduced to guarantee reaching robust conclusions in a counting framework.
