Our mission is to improve the economic well-being of middle- and lower-income Americans through research and education.
LISEP produces original economic research to provide a more accurate picture of the well-being of middle- and lower-income families.
Our research includes new economic indicators for unemployment, earnings, and cost of living. Our statistics aim to provide policymakers and the public a more transparent view into the economic situation of all Americans as compared with the traditionally relied upon metrics. LISEP also seeks to guide and support policy initiatives that increase opportunities for struggling Americans.
