Poverty is a complex issue with far-reaching consequences. It can have a negative impact on health, education, employment, and overall well-being. Measuring and understanding poverty is essential for developing effective policies and programs to address it. Public data sets can be a valuable resource for measuring and understanding poverty. These data sets can provide information on the number of people living in poverty, their demographics, and their geographic distribution. They can also provide information on the causes of poverty and the impact it has on individuals and communities.
