The first day of the Workshop on “Small Area Methods and living conditions indicators in European poverty studies in the era of data deluge and Big data” was opened by a Keynote of Dr. Joao Pedro Wagner de Azevedo, Lead Economist World Bank. He focused on the increasing need to obtain poverty indicators for small sub-national areas and the policy relevance of small area estimates. The first Table of the Workshop led participants to reflect on the estimation of poverty at the local level, mainly from a methodological point of view. The Table 2 was focused on multidimensionality of poverty and well-being and the challenges of reducing dimension in order to analyze these phenomena at local level and in the context of Big data. The final session of the first day was the Panel Discussion where policy makers explained the potential and effective use of data at local scale for policy address.
