What is Poverty?
Poverty is a general term to describe conditions of the poor. In America, poverty is measured based on a calculated poverty level that takes into account the size and income of a family. Here are some important statistics about poverty from the National Poverty Center.
The poverty threshold for a family with two adults and two children is $22,113.
In 2010, 15.1 percent of all people in the U.S. lived in poverty.
The poverty rate in 2010 was the highest poverty rate since 1993.
Poverty rates are highest for families headed by single women, particularly if they are black or Hispanic. In 2010, 31.6 percent of households headed by single women were poor, while 15.8 percent of households headed by single men and 6.2 percent of married-couple households lived in poverty.
Children represent a disproportionate share of the poor in the United States; they are 24 percent of the total population, but 36 percent of the poor population.
