CORRECT ANSWER: 1E 2D 3B 4C 5B 6A 7E 8D 9A
1.E
The passage shows us a clear explication of how social statistics underestimate or exaggerate the degree of hardship.
We can find the information at the very first beginning of paragraph 1 and 2.
“In many ways, our social statistics exaggerate the degree of hardship” and “Yet there are also many ways our social statistics underestimate the degree of labor-market-related hardship.”

2.D
By elimination
3.B
“Unemployment does not have the same dire consequences today as it did in the 1930’s when most of the unemployed were primary breadwinners, when income and earnings were usually much closer to the margin of subsistence, and when there were no countervailing social programs for those failing in the labor market. Increasing affluence, the rise of families with more than one wage earner, the growing predominance of secondary earners among the unemployed, and improved social welfare protection have unquestionably mitigated the consequences of joblessness.”

4.C
The conventional statistical indices failed to cover all determinants that truly reflected the dimensions of hardship of unemployment.

5.B
Yet there are also many ways our social statistics underestimate the degree of labor-market-related hardship.

6.A
Only the employed poor whose wages are at or below the minimum wage level is not counted in the poverty statistics.

7.E
The degree of hardship of the unemployment whose family is affluent is exaggerated.

8.D
Eliminate A B and E. In C, the fact that unemployment is not actively seeking work is wrong.

9.A
The main key word in the question is “the best criticism”.
All other options can be eliminated out.
