Q: Qual é a diferença entre poverty e depreviation e destitution e pauperdom/pauperism e neediness ?
A: Poverty you'll mostly hear in contexts of society, economics, etc. to mean lack of sufficient money and other social resources (such as access to health care). Destitution is similar, I think "poverty" is more common in this context. A quick dictionary search defines it as an "extreme state of poverty" which I'd say sounds accurate. Pauperdom is similar, however I'd say it's uncommon or perhaps even archaic -- you'd be unlikely to need to use it unless for stylistic reasons.

Deprivation is more general and is applied to a broader range of contexts. For example, your brain can be deprived of oxygen if you stop breathing. Or, if you're a new parent you're often sleep-deprived because you're up all night taking care of an infant.
