Each year, generally in the fall, the U.S. Census Bureau issues a report
on poverty in the United States. Among other information, it provides
statistics on how many people are poor, and on how poverty is
distributed by age, by race or ethnicity, by region, and by family type.
Individuals or families are poor if their annual pretax cash income
falls below a federal measure of poverty that is also recalculated each
Since 1965, there have been two slightly different versions of the
federal poverty measure:
* the poverty thresholds, and
* the poverty guidelines.
The poverty thresholds are the original version of the federal poverty
measure (developed by Mollie Orshansky of the Social Security
Administration). They are updated each year by the Census Bureau. The
thresholds are used mainly for statistical purposes—for instance,
preparing the estimates of the number of Americans in poverty for each
year's report. Values of the poverty thresholds for the years 1980–2008
for families of different sizes are available on the Census Bureau's Web
site. For example, for a four-person family unit with two children, the
2008 poverty threshold was $21,834. For one- or two-person family units,
the poverty thresholds differ by age; the 2008 threshold for one
individual under age 65 was $11,201, whereas for an individual 65 or over
it is $10,326. But check 2010, at above URL and you'll see most recent figs.
The poverty guidelines are the other version of the federal poverty
measure. They are issued each year, generally in the winter, in the
Federal Register by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The guidelines are a simplification of the poverty thresholds for use
for administrative purposes—for instance, determining financial
eligibility for certain federal programs. They are adjusted for families
of different sizes.
Poverty guidelines for the years since 1982 and other historical
information appear on the Web page "Poverty Guidelines, Research, and
Measurement" of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and
Evaluation in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Separate
HHS poverty guidelines for Alaska and Hawaii reflect Office of Economic
Opportunity administrative practice beginning in the 1966-1970 period.
Both the thresholds and the guidelines are the same for all mainland
states, regardless of regional differences in the cost of living. Both
are updated annually for price changes using the Consumer Price Index
for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U). The poverty guidelines are sometimes
loosely referred to as the "federal poverty level" or "poverty line,"
but these terms are ambiguous, and should be avoided in situations
(e.g., legislative or administrative) where precision is important.
Academics, statisticians, and policy analysts at IRP and elsewhere
believe that existing methods for determining the poverty measure and
estimating who is poor could be greatly improved. Topics of revising the
poverty measure and the methodological issues involved are discussed
elsewhere on this site, and on the Census Bureau's Web site under
Poverty Measurement Research. In July 2008, testimony on why the United
States needs to improve its poverty measure was delivered by Rebecca M.
Blank, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, to the subcommittee
on Income Security and Family Support of the House Ways and Means
Committee. So google the terms poverty line and state august 2010 so you
