Why This Indicator Matters

Given what we know about the long-term consequences associated with growing up poor, including slower or impaired brain development, lower educational attainment, increased likelihood of teen birth and arrest, reduced labor force attachment, and worse health1, poverty is a critical indicator of how youth are faring over time.

Definition and Source



Poverty is calculated by total family income to an annually adjusted threshold based on number of adults and children in the family. Therefore, all family members have the same poverty status.

This indicator includes children under 18.
