Definition and Source
Children in the specified age (i.e., under 5, 5-11, 12-17 and under 18) who live in households with annual incomes below the federal poverty threshold expressed as a percentage of all children in the specified age range.
Bureau of the Census, 2000 Census of Population and Housing, Census Bureau Website, www.census.gov, Summary File 3, Tables PO87, P159A, P159B, and P159H, Released May, 2002; and U.S. Census Bureau, 2016-2020 American Community Survey, Census Bureau Website, www.census.gov, Tables S1701, B17001, B17001A, B17001B, and B17001I.
The poverty threshold for a family of four (two adults and two related children under 18) was $17,463 in 2000 and $26,200 in 2020.
Data reported for 2016-2020 represent an average for that five-year period, while the rest of the data reflect single years only.
Different methodologies were used in producing base year versus current-year data for this indicator; hence, caution should be used in making comparisons over these two time periods.
