Did you know the official poverty rate increased by one percentage point since 2019? Every year, the Census Bureau releases a report on income and poverty.
Learn how to differentiate between and locate the different types of poverty data tables and reports available from the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplements (CPS ASEC), including the Income and Poverty in the United States reports and report tables, detailed tables, historical tables, and poverty threshold tables.
This Data Gem also helps you understand what data are found in the Official Poverty Measure versus the Supplemental Poverty Measure. You will also learn foundational information about poverty thresholds.
2020 CPS ASEC statistics became available in September of 2021. Find more information at https://www.census.gov/topics/income-poverty.html.
