Excerpt
Excerpt: This report describes alternative procedures for valuing noncash benefits received by the low-income population and estimates the effect of these benefits on the size and composttion of the poverty population in 1983. The report updates the estimates for 1979 to 1982 presented in Technical Paper 51 (issued in February 1984), using identical methods to value noncash benefits. Each of these methods is subject to many conceptual and measurement problems. In addition, there is as yet no consensus concerning either the relative merits of the three methods or the appropriateness of incorporating noncash benefits into the poverty measure in any form; therefore, all the work in this report should be viewed as exploratory in nature.
