Poverty between 150-199% state level (CPS)

Data Provided By

Definitions: Poverty (State Level) is the percentage of children birth through 18 years of age living between 150% and 199% of the U.S. poverty threshold.
Poverty (Current Population Survey State Level) is the three-year average estimate of the percentage of children under age 19 living in families below 100%, between 100–149%, 150–199% and above 200% of the U.S. poverty threshold, as defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget. Data are from the U.S. Census Bureau, Current Population Survey (CPS), March Annual Social and Economic Supplement. The current rate represents three calendar year average of 2017-2019 (CPS survey years 2018-2020).  Due to the CPS redesign of income and poverty questions in 2014, data prior to 2013 are not comparable.  The trend represents the average annual percent change between the calendar years 2014-2015 through 2017-2019.

The 2020 CPS ASEC (2019 calendar year estimates) is not comparable to prior years. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Census Bureau stopped in-person interviews on March 15th and restarted phone only interviews on March 20th. The resulting response rate was about 10 percentage points lower than the same period last year and fewer households participated in the survey. Similarly, the 2020 American Community Survey was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Reliable estimates are not available.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement (March supplement, or ASEC), 2016 through 2020.

Footnotes: Three-Year Averages are shown. For example, 9.72% of children between 100% and 149% of poverty in 2018 is calculated from three-year average from CPS 2017 through 2019 (data reflect poverty status for 2016 - 2018). Number for 2014 is not shown because only redesigned income questions were asked starting  2015 CPS ASEC.  Therefore, the three-year average numbers to combine the 2012 and 2013 traditional income questions are not advised. Number for 2015 is based two-year average of available redesigned income questions starting 2015 CPS ASEC (reflecting 2014 status), and the 2016 CPS ASEC redesigned questions.  Three-year averages that required inclusion of 2014 CPS ASEC were not advised. Beginning with 2016 data, numbers are based on the three-year average of redesigned income questions.  Comparisons with 2013 and prior numbers are not advised.
