Overlooked and Undercounted: The Struggle to Make Ends Meet in New York City

The United Way of NYC recently released Overlooked and Undercounted: The Struggle to Make Ends Meet in New York City. This report shares the results of the 2014 Self-Sufficiency Standard Report for NYC, which measures how much income a family of a certain composition in a given place must earn to meet their basic needs, details how many NYC households live below this standard, and discusses the characteristics of these households. Employers, advocates, and legislators can use the repot to evaluate wages, provide career counseling, and create programs that lead to economic self-sufficiency for working families. Read the Executive Summary and Policy Recommendations, or download the full report.
