POVERTY LINE: The official measure of the income needed by a family based on family size, location, and characteristics of the head of the household. The official U.S. poverty line is based on more of a relative poverty level rather than an absolute poverty level. For example, a family of two living in a rural area would need a different amount of money to stay above the official poverty line that would a family of four living in a city.

An inefficient, bad, or adverse outcome of a market exchange that results because buyers and/or sellers make decisions based on asymmetric information. This commonly results in a market that exchanges a lesser quality good, what is termed the market for lemons. Two related problems resulting from asymmetric information are moral hazard and the principal-agent problem. Two methods of lessoning the problem of adverse selection are signalling and screening.
