How do we measure poverty in the United States?
We measure poverty through the person or family's income and compare it to a set poverty threshold that is created by the government. People who fall under this threshold are considered to live within poverty and could qualify for welfare benefits. We are one of the only countries in the world that use this measure of poverty.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs demonstrates what?
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is typically shown as a pyramid and demonstrates how behavioral motivation affects humans. Each stage of the pyramid must be met before moving on to the next. For example, a human must have basic needs (water, food, shelter) before they can reach the next step of safety needs (employment, resources). This shows that the person must have access to food and water before they can secure stable employment.
