In addition, qualitative data have been used to supplement the survey data. Both descriptive and inferential statistics are used for analysing data. Findings – The paper argues that slum communities experience poverty and vulnerability in terms of income, consumption and asset which is most strongly influenced by location, pattern of habitat, gender, recent migration and household organisation. Originality/​value – The paper offers insights into poverty and vulnerability in urban Bangladesh.
