Poverty

Poverty is a state or condition in which one lacks the financial resources and essentials for a certain standard of living. Poverty can have diverse social, economic, and political causes and effects. The U.S. Census Bureau uses a set of money income thresholds that vary by family size and composition to determine who is in poverty. The indicators include demographics of people living in poverty, food insecurity, healthy food environment, and participation in food stamps/SNAP.
