  2. 2. Alternative questions for measuring poverty<br />How much income do you make?<br />How much income do you make relative to what others make?<br />Do you consider yourself poor?<br />Do you have access to basic needs?<br />What is the quality of life you are able to lead?<br />
  3. 3. Poverty as Lack of Income<br />How much income do you make?<br />
  4. 4. Test your knowledge!<br />How much should a family of 5 persons be earning per month to be considered non-poor? <br />What percent of the Philippine population is considered poor?<br />
  5. 5. When is a person considered poor? <br />A poor person is someone who earns income below the official poverty line or poverty threshold.<br />The poverty line measures the income needed to obtain basic and non-basic needs for one year. <br />
  6. 6. How does the government compute for the poverty line?<br />The government constructs a menu per region that satisfies basic nutritional requirements. The government computes for the cost of that menu. (ex. P43)<br />The government computes for the proportion of income that is budgeted for food using survey data. (ex. 66%)<br />The figure obtained in #1 is divided by the figure obtained in #2. (ex. P43 / 66% = P65)<br />
