The preliminary estimates of the weighted average poverty thresholds for 2009 are calculated by multiplying the 2008 weighted average thresholds by a factor of 0.996442, the ratio of the average annual Consumer Price Index for All Consumers (CPI-U) for 2009 to the average annual CPI-U for 2008. Since the average annual CPI-U for 2009 was lower than the average annual CPI-U for 2008, poverty thresholds for 2009 are slightly lower than the corresponding thresholds for 2008. These estimates may differ slightly from the final thresholds that will be published in September 2010 with the release of the official poverty estimates for 2009.
If you have any questions concerning these poverty thresholds, please call (301) 763-3242.
