Measuring Poverty & Self-Sufficiency

Items listed here include reports and analyses about methods of determining poverty levels, self-sufficiency, and the poor and low-income population in the U.S. Low-income is described by some sources as double or 200% of the federal poverty level and is meant to describe a living situation where a family is barely able to make ends meet, facing material hardships and financial pressures similar to those officially counted as poor. – Low Income Children in the United States, NCCP, (May 2004).
