The proposed index assesses the multidimensional QoE (see Figure 1) for individuals in three dimensions and five indicators, summarised in Table 1: occupational status, tenure, social security affiliation, and excessive working hours. For each of these indicators, a deprivation cut-off line is established based on existing studies that demonstrate which dimensions of the QoE are important. Each worker is then categorised according to whether s/he is deprived or not in each indicator, and a deprivation score is constructed based on the nested weight
structure specified in Table 1. Equal weights are assigned to each dimension, and equal weights are also assigned to each indicator within the dimension. Finally, a cut-off line of 1/3 is established to determine overall multidimensional deprivation
