Definition and Source
Children under age 18 who live in families with incomes at or above 200 percent of the federal poverty level. The federal poverty definition consists of a series of thresholds based on family size and composition. In 2015, a 200 percent poverty threshold for a family of two adults and two children was $48,072. Poverty status is not determined for people in military barracks, institutional quarters or for unrelated individuals under age 15 (such as foster children). Children in immigrant families is defined as children who are themselves foreign-born or reside with at least one foreign-born parent.
