Economic InsecurityEncyclopedia of World Poverty (2006)
Economic insecurity is a condition in which an individual's or household's economic well-being and stability are compromised. Households living in poverty are by definition economically insecure as they struggle on a daily basis to make ends meet and fulfill their basic needs. However, living in poverty is not a prerequisite for experiencing economic insecurity.
