ALICE in the Crosscurrents Update

New ALICE Data:

Wage Gains No Match for Inflation 

ALICE is a United Way acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. ALICE households earn more than the Federal Poverty Level, but less than the basic cost of living for the county. 

Households below this threshold can’t afford the essentials. 

There’s a good chance you have a friend, acquaintance or co-worker that might fall into the ALICE category and not even know it. They are hard working individuals who don’t ask for help.

Check out the fact sheets on this page to learn more about ALICE families in Vanderburgh, Warrick, and Spencer Counties. Visit for interactive dashboards and place-based data.


The ALICE Report is published annually by the United Way and features a county-by-county and state-by-state breakdown in percentages of households who fall below the ALICE threshold, a metric that weighs a local household survival budget with the amount of income that household actually brings in. 

Your donation to United Way of Southwestern Indiana helps fund local programs and services that provide assistance to ALICE families and individuals doing their best to move forward. 

*The 2024 ALICE Report reflects 2022 point-in-time data.
