The U.S. Census Bureau's American Fact Finder, American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Estimates. Data were retrieved on February 6, 2021 from: http://factfinder2.census.gov (Table B17025).
*Please use these estimates with caution. The total confidence interval (upper bound minus lower bound) of the percent estimate, is 10 percentage points or greater, which indicates that this estimate has a large margin of error. This generally occurs when estimate relies on small number of cases. To obtain total confidence interval values around the estimates for this indicator please contact Washington KIDS COUNT.
S: These data have been suppressed because the percent estimates have a total confidence interval of 10 percentage points or greater and/or the counts are 10 or fewer.

The 5-year ACS estimates represent the average characteristics over the 5-year period of time, and therefore are less current than 1-year ACS estimates. However, these estimates are more reliable than 1-year and 3-year ACS estimates because they are based on a larger sample size. The 5-year estimates are also available for all geographic areas because of their sample size, whereas the 3-year estimates are published for populations of 20,000 or greater, and the 1-year estimates are only published for populations of 65,000 or greater. More information about 1-year versus 3-year versus 5-year ACS surveys and estimates are available online athttp://www.census.gov/acs/www/guidance_for_data_users/estimates/
The federal poverty definition consists of a series of thresholds based on family size and composition. In 2018, the poverty threshold for a family of two adults and two children was $25,465.
As defined by the Census Bureau, a native born US citizen is a person who was born in the United States, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Island Areas or a person who was born in a foreign country and had at least one parent who was a U.S. citizen. A foreign born person is either a naturalized citizen or a non-citizen. Naturalization is the conferring, by any means, of citizenship upon a person after birth. A foreign born non-citizen is not a U.S. citizen.
