Description
 
This report shows that in 2011, 46.2 million people were counted as poor in the U.S., the same number as in 2010 and the largest number of persons counted as poor in the measureńˇ╗s 53-year recorded history. The poverty rate, or percent of the population considered poor under the official definition, was reported at 15.0% in 2011, statistically unchanged from 2010 and well above its most recent pre-recession low of 12.3% in 2006 -- the highest level seen in the past 18 years (1993). The increase in poverty over the past four years reflects the effects of the economic recession that began in Dec. 2007. Some analysts expect poverty to remain above pre-recessionary levels for as long as a decade, and perhaps longer, given the depth of the recession and slow pace of economic recovery. The incidence of poverty varies widely across the population according to age, education, labor force attachment, family living arrangements, and area of residence, among other factors. Under the official poverty definition, an average family of four was considered poor in 2011 if its pre-tax cash income for the year was below $23,021. Appendix: U.S. Poverty Statistics: 1959-2011. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
