Definition and Source



The five-year average number of 18-24 year olds with income in the past twelve months below the federal poverty level. The percentage is based on the total number of 18-24 year olds during that period.

Data Source

U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey, 5-Year Estimates, Table B17001.


Time comparisons with 5-year estimates is best done without overlapping the years. For example, comparing 2018, 2019 and 2020 5-year estimates is not ideal since the 2020 estimates include 2019 and 2018 in their data estimates. Better to use something like the 2020 5-year estimates compared with the 2015 estimates, since they do not include any overlapping years.
