According to statistic data, more than 120 million people in the EU are at risk of poverty or social exclusion. The fight against poverty and social exclusion is at the top of the Europe 2020 strategy for intelligent, sustainable and inclusive growth of the society.
A strategic objective of the European administration (national, regional and local) is to help the social insertion of these groups using several instruments and mechanisms.
During the last years the steps that have been carried out to reduce this number have been failed because the number has continued to increase and the Community of Madrid has not been an exception.
Public administrations must understand better the different groups of single units and family units with homogeneous themes that lead to exclusion and, therefore, need particular policies and follow-up of inclusion.
Measuring the results of these policies applied to each group and analysing their chronological evolution is a critical issue to understand the factors that affect the possible social insertion of an individual or his / her family unit.
The main purpose of the PoC carried out in the Community of Madrid are:
- Identify the different groups of single units and family units existing in the Community of Madrid with homogeneous themes that lead to social exclusion.
- Detect chronological evolution and discover its causes.
- Establish an insertion index to measure the potential inclusion of an single unit or family unit identifying, if possible, strengths and weaknesses in applied social policies.
To meet these purposes, two lines of work will be carried out:
- On the one hand, an analytical process will be carried out, which will process and analyse the raw information received using analytical algorithms and information segmentation.
- On the other hand, a tool will be developed that visually presents the previously described information in a way that facilitates its understanding, reflecting the segmentation obtained from the different groups at risk of social exclusion in the Community of Madrid, its chronological evolution and identifying causes and factors that help make social insertion possible for each group.
