Table 3. Percent of Families in Poverty, by Definition of Income and Selected Characteristics: 2007

CAUTION: Whenever a base of an income distribution is relatively small, the medians, means, and percent distributions are extremely unreliable because of the limited size of the sample. Pay particular attention to the standard errors for small population estimates, especially if the base is less than 75,000.
