  1. The threshold of poverty, below which one's income does not cover necessities.

Translations


Simple English


The poverty line, which is also sometimes called the poverty threshold, in a country is the smallest amount of money that a family can make and still buy what it needs to buy. [1] In the United States, the poverty line is different depending on how many people there are in a family, so the poverty line will be higher in a family with eight people than in a family with three people. [2] This is because it costs more money to buy food and other supplies in a family with more people.
