NEW! Where the Ends Don't Meet 2014: Measuring Poverty and Self-Sufficiency among Oregon's Families, by Elizabeth Morehead, Ph.D., and Sheila Martin, Ph.D., January 2015. (.pdf file)
IMS has partnered with Worksystems, Inc. to release a new report, “Where the Ends Don’t Meet,” an in-depth analysis of households in Oregon that are not meeting the Self-Sufficiency Standard. The Standard is an alternative to the Federal Poverty Level that measures how much income is required to meet a household’s basic living expenses without subsidies. The analysis was conducted by Dr. Liza Morehead and Dr. Sheila Martin and supported in part with funding from Worksystems.
