The first minimum income standard for Great Britain was launched in 2008. A minimum income standard (MIS) is the income required for a specified household type to reach a socially acceptable minimum living standard. It is based on research on what members of the public, informed by experts where appropriate, think is needed to achieve this minimum living standard. The 2008 MIS was based on research undertaken in Great Britain.
