deprivation cycle

deprivation cycle
  much the same as the cycle of poverty but as applied to EMDW inner city areas. Low wages and poverty mean overcrowding and no investment in housing. These cause poor health and stress and low levels of education and training, meaning low skill levels in the population, restricting employment opportunities and maintaining the situation of low wages and unemployment.
