Title: Neighborhood Poverty Rates between 1970 and 2000

Citation Type: Miscellaneous

Publication Year: 2011

Abstract: Official poverty statistics in the United States measure the percent of individuals whose income is below a threshold. The Census Bureau defines a set of income thresholds that depend on family size and composition, and family members are considered to be in poverty if their family's total income is less than the specified threshold. Over the last 40 years, poverty rates have varied between 11 percent and 15 percent of the population, with a clear cyclical pattern. The latest figures available are from 2009, and they show a sharp rise in the poverty rate during the last recession.
