Since 2008, research on the Minimum Income Standard (MIS) has identified what different household types need for a minimum acceptable living standard, based on what goods and services members of the public say are needed. This study projects the disposable incomes of households on out-of-work benefits and minimum wages, comparing them with MIS between 2010 and 2020.
