Drawing the Line: Alternative Poverty Measures and Their Implications for Public Policyby Patricia Ruggles, William Gorham
Pub. Date: 10/28/1990
Publisher: Urban Institute Press
The U.S. official poverty measures were adopted in the late 1960s and, even then, were based on data from the mid-1950s. This book argues for a reevaluation of the experts' consensus on where we draw the poverty line.
