HARTFREE, Y., HIRSCH, D. and SUTTON, L., 2013. Minimum income standards and older pensioners’ needs. York: Joseph Rowntree Foundation, 34pp.
This paper was commissioned as part of the JRF programme on minimum
income standards, which aims to establish how much people need to achieve
a minimum acceptable standard of living in the UK today, based on what
ordinary people think should be in a household budget and experts’ views of
what is adequate. It also aims to influence debates about the nature of poverty
in the UK.
