Definition

Children under age 18 who live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level by age group and race/ethnicity.

The federal poverty definition consists of a series of thresholds based on family size and composition. For 2022, the poverty threshold for a family of 4 with two children was $29,678. Poverty status is not determined for people in military barracks, institutional quarters, or for unrelated individuals under age 15 (such as foster children).  The data are based on income received in the 12 months prior to the survey.

Data Source

PRB analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey table B17001.
