MSLC is a measure of the care available in a child’s first year of life. This level varies from the most comprehensive care in a hospital to the most limited services in an inpatient setting. It is also called the minimum calibration standard concentration. This means that the sample must contain the same concentration as the lowest calibration standard to be accepted. In clinical testing, minimum levels are typically defined as the lowest concentration at which all methods are valid. In addition, the poverty level is the annual income of a family of a particular size. The guidelines are updated each year.
