A criterion is obtained for the Hardy-type inequality (0a|f(x)|pv(x)dx)1/pc1{(v(a)0a|f(x)|pdx)1/p+(0a0a|f(x)f(y)|pw(|xy|)dxdy)1/p} to be valid for 0<aA and 0<p<. This weakens a criterion previously found by the first two authors and comes close to being necessary as well as sufficient. When an inequality in the criterion is reversed, a Poincaré-type inequality is derived in some cases.
