Our latest research report presents and analyzes The Self-Sufficiency Standard for Connecticut 2015. This measure calculates how much income a family must earn to meet basic needs, with the amount varying by family composition and where they live. The Standard is a tool that can be used in a variety of ways—by clients of workforce/training programs seeking paths to self-sufficiency, by program managers to evaluate program effectiveness, and by policymakers and legislators seeking to create programs and pathways that lead to self-sufficiency for working families.
