"In this project, we created an Oregon Poverty Measure (ORPM) for the 5-year period from 2014-18. Compared to the Official Poverty Measure (OPM), the ORPM better captures the level of hardship experienced by Oregonians, permits a more accurate assessment of the impact of various national and state antipoverty policies and programs, and provides more detail about the geography of poverty in Oregon. The ORPM is necessary because of the many limitations of the OPM developed by the Census Bureau...We modeled the ORPM after these other [state's] initiatives but differed in our data sources, analysis steps, and incorporation of state-specific economic and social characteristics as well as policy priorities of the 33rd U.S. state"--Page 9.
