While the Working Group has not discussed thresholds in depth, the Working Group acknowledges that poverty thresholds are a key component of a poverty measure. Individuals with resources that fall below the poverty threshold are counted as poor, and individuals with resources at or above the poverty threshold are not counted as poor. The Working Group has identified several key considerations for setting poverty thresholds, and plans to discuss each of those considerations in the coming months, as well as other concepts related to thresholds. Finally, while the Working Group is focused on the extended income-based and consumption-based measures, the Working Group has also identified other topics worthy of further research by the Federal Statistical System. These topics include multi-dimensional poverty measurement and individual indicators of well-being, and populations such as those experiencing homelessness that are not included in the surveys on which the Working Group has focused. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Desired Focus of Comments OMB is particularly interested in receiving comments on the questions posed by the Working Group. To be most useful to the Working Group in their ongoing deliberations and ultimately to OMB in reviewing the Working Group’s final recommendations, responders should read the Working Group’s interim report before addressing the posed questions. Responses should be concise, include citations if summarizing or depending on published work, and any links to related research. In addition, responses should clearly identify which question is being addressed. Questions posed below are those the Working Group deemed most significant and relevant to the Working Group’s remaining discussions. The questions have been sorted into broad categories for ease of review. In addition, a pointer to related discussion within the interim report follows each question. The Working Group’s interim report titled ‘‘Interim Report of the Interagency Technical Working Group on Alternative Poverty Measures’’ is available as a supplemental document on www.regulations.gov in docket number ‘‘OMB–2019–0007’’. Definitions 1. How should a sharing unit be defined? A sharing unit is meant to reflect the set of people sharing resources in a household. (See VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Feb 13, 2020 Jkt 250001 Adjusting for different sharing unit sizes.) Resource Measures 2. What standards should the group use to determine which resource measures should be preferred? Specifically, to what extent should the group consider the following standards: (i) Association with other measures of material hardship, (ii) conceptual advantages, (iii) simplicity, (iv) feasibility (including data availability), (v) reproducibility? (See Advantages/ Disadvantages of Income and Consumption Resource Measures. See also Multi-Dimensional Poverty Measurement and Individual Indicators of Well-Being.) 3. Should the value of health insurance be incorporated? And if so, how? (See Alternative versions of income measures with different values of health insurance.) 4. Should the value of education be incorporated? And if so, how? (See Treatment of Education.) For a Potential Income Resource Measure 5. What income sources should be included (aside from health insurance, which is addressed by question 3)? If so, how? (See Income Measures Using the CPS ASEC and American Community Survey.) 6. What expenses, if any, should be subtracted from income? For example, how should medical out of pocket (MOOP) expenditures be treated in a new measure? Should other expenses such as childcare and commuting costs be subtracted? (See Income should be defined more broadly than pre-tax cash income currently used for the OPM.) 7. How should the Working Group address the problem of survey misreporting of income in household surveys? (See Correcting Survey Data for Misreporting and Improving Tax Estimates.) For a Potential Consumption Resource Measure 8. What types of spending should be included as consumption (aside from spending on health care or insurance, which is addressed by question 3)? If so, how? (See Consumption Measures Using the Consumer Expenditure Interview Survey.) 9. How should vehicles and housing be included? (See Consumption Measures Using the Consumer Expenditure Interview Survey.) 10. How should the Working Group address the problem of survey misreporting of consumption in household surveys? Should the group PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8613 consider using only those types of consumption that are reported with greater accuracy, while excluding less accurately measured types of consumption? What are the tradeoffs in using only well-measured consumption versus full consumption? (See Accounting for Expenditure Misreporting.) Thresholds 11. How should the thresholds be set initially? (See Setting poverty thresholds in a baseline year.) 12. How should they be updated over time? (See Adjusting poverty thresholds over time.) 13. Should thresholds be adjusted for geographic areas? If so, how? (See Adjusting poverty thresholds across geographic areas.) 14. How should a sharing unit’s size and composition be accounted for? (See Adjusting for different sharing unit sizes.) Thank you for your thoughts on these and other important questions associated with the Working Group’s discussion of Alternative Measures of Poverty. OMB and the Working Group look forward to your insights and feedback. Paul J. Ray, Administrator, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
