Why This Indicator Matters
Definition and Source
The denominator for the percentages is the total child population in each respective poverty level for whom poverty status is determined in respective geographic areas. Children for whom poverty status is determined include children living in households where they are related to the householder by birth, marriage, or adoption. Thus, children living in foster care or in a group/institutional setting are excluded from this indicator.
N.A. - Not Available. Estimates are suppressed when unreliable or the relative standard error is greater than 30%.
GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect the child’s place of residence.
DATE - ACS data reflect a 5-year pooled estimate. That is, the estimate is the result of data being continuously collected nearly every day for five years.
