Class can determine access to opportunities, resources, and power, and can shape an individual's social and economic mobility.

By using this framework, social workers can gain a comprehensive understanding of the client's cultural background and how it may impact their experiences and needs. This enables them to provide more culturally sensitive and appropriate services to the client.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Comparing a person’s resources compared with a fixed numerical standard is

    • A.

      Relative poverty

    • B.

      Absolute poverty

    • C.

      A poverty index relative to the UN standard

    • D.

      How much money they need

    Correct Answer
    B. Absolute poverty
    Explanation
    Absolute poverty refers to a situation where a person's resources, such as income or wealth, are below a certain fixed numerical standard that is considered the poverty line. This means that the person does not have enough resources to meet their basic needs, such as food, shelter, and clothing. The concept of absolute poverty is not relative to any other standard or comparison, but rather focuses on the individual's lack of resources in relation to a specific poverty threshold.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Comparing a person’s resources with a “normative” standard is:

    • A.

      Relative poverty

    • B.

      Absolute poverty

    • C.

      Easy to assess

    • D.

      The best way to accurately count those in poverty

    Correct Answer
    A. Relative poverty
    Explanation
    Comparing a person's resources with a "normative" standard refers to relative poverty. Relative poverty is a measure that compares an individual's income or resources to the average income or resources of the society they live in. It takes into account the relative deprivation and inequality within a society. This approach provides a more nuanced understanding of poverty as it considers the context and standards of living in a particular society. It helps identify individuals or groups who may not meet an absolute poverty threshold but still experience significant disadvantages and limitations compared to others in their society.

    Problem(s) with “Market Basket” approach to the poverty threshold include:

    • A.

      There is no adjustment for geographical differences in cost of living

    • B.

      There is no of consideration for different nutritional needs of different groups of people

    • C.

      The assumption that one-third of income will be spent on food by all families is a problem

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The "Market Basket" approach to the poverty threshold has several problems. Firstly, it does not take into account the geographical differences in the cost of living. This means that the same poverty threshold is applied to all areas, regardless of the varying expenses in different regions. Secondly, the approach does not consider the different nutritional needs of different groups of people. Different individuals or families may require specific dietary requirements, and the "Market Basket" approach fails to account for this. Lastly, the assumption that one-third of income will be spent on food by all families is flawed. This assumption may not hold true for all families, as their spending patterns and priorities can vary. Therefore, all of the above reasons contribute to the problems with the "Market Basket" approach to the poverty threshold.

      People who meet the standard of the market basket approach

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    People with income 50% below the poverty line would be considered to be in deep poverty. This means that their income is significantly lower than the poverty line, indicating a higher level of poverty and financial hardship. This group would likely face more severe challenges in meeting their basic needs and may require additional assistance and support.
