The American Community Survey determines poverty status by comparing the householder's total family income in the past 12 months with the poverty threshold appropriate for the householder's family size.

Percentages represent the number of related children living below poverty with a single-father, or single-mother householder as a percentage of all children residing with a single-father, or single-mother householder.
