The Indiana Self Sufficiency Standard calculates how much money working adults need to meet their basic needs without subsidies of any kind. It accounts for varying costs of living and working by family size, composition, the age of children and by where these families reside in Indiana.
The Self-Sufficiency Standard is calculated for 70 different family types in each of Indiana’s 92 counties. The 70 family types range from a single adult with no children, to one adult with one infant, one adult with one preschooler, and so forth, up to two-adult families with three teenagers.
For more information, contact the Indiana Institute for Working Families, ICHHI at (317) 636-8819. The Indiana Standard is available online at www.ichhi.org
