Social problems remain world-class challenges. The cause and origin of most social problems lie in poverty and poverty. Poverty is assessed according to various criteria, and it is important that the assessment system adequately reflects the real situation. Certain recommendations are offered by international organizations, but it is necessary to take into account the specifics of a particular country or region. When assessing poverty, extrapolation of data from studies conducted on a sample population on population by statistical weighting is carried out, and the simulation method is also used. As a rule, demographic and social statistics are taken into account. A relatively balanced assessment of the existing differentiation is the so-called Adjusted (equivalent) scales, as well as the prevalence of poverty, which are determined by subtracting the indices of low-income (expenditure) deficit, severity and depth of poverty. Regression models are used to estimate and predict poverty. The variety of methods for assessing poverty is due to problems that arise at certain times and in certain spaces. They can be overcome only as a result of complex and purposeful work, in which a scientifically based assessment system plays an important role.
