Webinar: Consumer’s Guide to Poverty Measurement

The Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP), the nation’s original poverty research center, will hold a Webinar to provide “An Intelligent Consumer’s Guide to Poverty Measurement,” on Wednesday, May 14 from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern time. The presenters are IRP Director Timothy Smeeding and the U.S. Census Bureau’s Kathleen Short, two distinguished experts in the field.

The Webinar will explain the various types of poverty measures and will contrast the "official" U.S. poverty measure with the newer Supplemental Poverty Measure. The presenters will talk about the development of state poverty measures and the benefits they can offer in understanding poverty at the local and regional level. Finally, Short and Smeeding will touch on recent research on poverty measurement and take questions from the online audience.

Registration, which merely requires submission of your name and email address, is at http://www.irp.wisc.edu/publications/media/webinars/onlineregistration.htm.

The Webinar will also be recorded and available for later viewing. For more information about past and future IRP Webinars, see http://www.irp.wisc.edu/publications/media/webinars.htm#may2014.
