Description
 
. Widely used as an indicator of the economic well-being of the population, for analysis of government policies, & in allocating benefits in social welfare programs, the official U.S. poverty measure has not changed significantly since 1965. Researchers have questioned the accuracy of its measurement of family resources, as well as the appropriateness of the level of income used to define poverty. This report identifies the issues & recent developments associated with measuring economic well-being & setting a poverty standard  & looks at suggestions experts have for addressing these issues.
