New Stanford Poverty Count

A new initiative to release a Stanford Poverty Count is being launched by the Stanford Center for the Study of Poverty and Inequality. The initiative aims to provide a more accurate measure of poverty in the U.S. by taking into account factors not considered in the current poverty index. The Stanford Poverty Count will more accurately measure which families are poor and whether poverty is increasing or declining.
