Editor's Notes

  1. Explain who IPP is.
  2. NEEDS updating for methodology & discussion of tax added!!!! – pull from Peter’s methodology slidesThe family budgets we use in this study represent a very frugal and modest living standard. (Mention- our report has info for all Iowa counties across 21 different family types)Lead with Budget assumptions: USDA low cost food plan, HUD 40% market rate, transp. to/from work., as well as health care, federal and state income taxes, and clothing and other necessities. Child care -- Assumptions on ages of children – 1 child is 2-3 years old, 2nd child is 6-10(Appendix: complete explanation of the methodology). No money is included for debt payments or skill training; for entertainment, vacations, or restaurant meals, or even for savings for retirement or a child’s college education. You can see child care, housing, and transportation are the three largest components of a family budget. These expenses are exactly what get undercounted when determining federal poverty thresholds.Note that child care and health care are county-specific; food is national, clothing and HH expenses based on the midwest. Housing and transportation are county specific, as are property taxes (because rent is county level). Determined  Single parent Family supporting wage for 1 child $18.08, 2 children $24.88. Two parents with 2 children, 1 working, 1 at home $19.56 with both working $14.49 each.Something here about total expenses; then we calculate what their earnings would need to be to bring home their calculated expenses.
  3. While I have provided this information for the Cedar Rapids, MSA… (and just 4 different family sizes), we do have information on the Iowa Policy Project’s website for a greater number of family types for each county in Iowa – just click and the information will pop up.
