Why This Indicator Matters
Growing up in poverty threatens healthy child development.1 Poverty can negatively impact a child’s cognitive, social, emotional and physical health. The effects of poverty can build over time, with consequences at one stage impeding progress at a later stage. When children experience poverty in early childhood, or when poverty persists over an extended period of time, the consequences can be long-lasting.2
Definition and Source
Several data sources are used in producing the Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE) program estimates. Information on data inputs can be found at https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/saipe/guidance/model-input-data.html. For states and counties, comparisons between modeled estimates for two different years, from 2006 and beyond are possible for poverty rate of the population ages 0 to 17. Poverty estimates from SAIPE should not be compared with other poverty indicators based on data from the American Community Survey 5-year estimates.
