The deprivation approach addresses some of the limitations of the income poverty approach. First, the material deprivation approach assesses whether an individual’s material wellbeing is fulfilled. Through measuring the necessities that one does not possess; the deprivation approach takes into account the cost of living and other financial burdens experienced by different people. It also considers the variations of an individual’s ability to source from other means, including drawing on the person’s assets, going into debt, or financing with the help of relatives, to fulfill basic needs. In addition, although the income poverty line measures the number of resources a household command, without the information on intra-household distribution, we cannot ascertain whether the material wellbeing of an individual household member is fulfilled through receiving their share of income. The deprivation approach, on the other hand, avoids such problems by directly assessing the extent to which an individual is deprived of essential items.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
