The social context of poverty is represented with two main points: absolute poverty and relative poverty. Absolute poverty is a situation under which a person lacks the minimum income required to fulfill the minimum requirements for one or more basic living needs for an extended amount of time (shelter, food, housing). Relative poverty is a condition where a household income is a specific percentage below median income [CITATION All17 \l 1033 ].
