Update: a few weeks ago I posted this article calling attention to yet more delays in the unrolling of the long-awaited Supplemental Poverty Measure from the Census Bureau.   As it turns out, they have recently announced that this new index is in fact ready for prime time (see, for example, this press release).

More analysis and thoughts later after I am able to take a look, but I wanted to file something quick just to acknowledge the effort to get something out there.
