Economics - The poverty line

The poverty line

The Henderson poverty line (income-based) is a useful guide when examining
the concept of equity. The proportion of people living below the poverty
line has increased from approximately 8% in the 1970s to over 14% in the
1990s. Unfortunately, poverty amongst dependent children has risen the
most.
