Children in poverty-3 year averages

Data Provided by:



Definitions: Three-Year Average Percentage of Children (0-17) in Poverty for Delaware and Counties, New Castle and combined Kent and Sussex from years 1989-2015.

Data Source: Center for Applied Demography and Survey Research, University of Delaware.

Footnotes: *Some Delaware indicators are presented as three- or five- year averages because rates based on small numbers of events in this modestly-populated state can vary dramatically from year to year. A three- or five- year average is less susceptible to distortion. In these cases, it is helpful to look at trends rather than at actual numbers, rates or percentages due to the small numbers.
