Percent of families with related children that are below poverty level
U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, Various Years, B17010: Poverty Status in the Past 12 Months of Families by Family Type by Presence of Related Children Under 18 Years By Age of Related Children - Universe: Families.
Estimates for the percent of families with children under the federal poverty level includes families with children who are related to but may not be the children of the householder.
Estimates for Kauai County in 2016, 2011, and 2010 only offer medium reliability and should be used with caution. For more information, contact the Center on the Family.
Please note, the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey
(ACS) 5-year estimates provide average characteristics aggregated over a 5-year
period. The primary advantage of using multiyear estimates is the
increased statistical reliability of the data for less populated areas and
small population subgroups. However, 5-year estimates are less current than
single year estimates (i.e., since they are derived from averages over five
calendar years) and should not be compared to single year estimates. The Census
Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap, such as comparing
2007-2011 with 2012-2016, which means waiting longer to identify a trend.
However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of
the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only
a few years. Please see the ACS data use handbook for more information (https://www.census.gov/content/dam/Census/library/publications/2008/acs/ACSGeneralHandbook.pdf).
