A formal account of an observation, investigation, finding, activity or any other type of information.
This paper was commissioned as part of the JRF programme on minimum income standards, which aims to establish how much people need to achieve a minimum acceptable standard of living in the UK today, based on what ordinary people think should be in a household budget and experts’ views of what is adequate. It also aims to influence debates about the nature of poverty in the UK.
