Measuring Mobility from Poverty

The Us Partnership on Mobility from Poverty looked at what it would take to dramatically increase mobility from poverty. Their definition of mobility includes three core principles: economic success, power and autonomy, and being valued in the community.

In 2018, they released a Brief and a related capacity building Toolkit.  As part of this toolkit, they also provide a Measure Selector that features a filterable listing of different measures to allow your organization to identify the best measures for your project. These measures are categorized by three factors - power and autonomy, being valued in community, and economic success.
