HIRSCH, D.B., 2015. Will the 2015 summer budget improve living standards in 2020? Loughborough: Loughborough University on behalf of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
Since 2008, research on the Minimum Income Standard (MIS) has identified what
different household types need for a minimum acceptable living standard,
based on what goods and services members of the public say are needed.
This study projects the disposable incomes of households on out-of-work benefits
and minimum wages, comparing them with MIS between 2010 and 2020.
This report projects what current policies and economic projections will mean for the ability of households on safety-net benefits and on the new National Living wage (NLW) to meet minimum needs in the present Parliament.
