What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of people living below the federal poverty level.
Why this is important: 
Federal poverty thresholds are set every year by the Census Bureau and vary by size of family and ages of family members. A high poverty rate is both a cause and a consequence of poor economic conditions. A high poverty rate indicates that local employment opportunities are not sufficient to provide for the local community. Through decreased buying power and decreased taxes, poverty is associated with lower quality schools and decreased business survival.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,143 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
