Adequacy of Guaranteed Minimum Income benefits

This dataset shows the income of jobless families relying on minimum-income safety-net benefits as a percentage of the median disposable income in the population. This can be compared with a poverty line defined as a fixed percentage of median income. For instance, if the poverty threshold is 50% of median income, a value of 30% means that benefit entitlements alleviate poverty risks of 60%. Data are presented from 2001 onwards.
