Why we do it


Poverty report 

Research suggests that, on average, families need an income of about twice the federal poverty threshold to meet their most basic needs. Children living in families with incomes below this level—$48,016 for a family of four with two children in 2014—are referred to as low income. The United States measures poverty by an outdated standard developed in the 1960s

In New Jersey, there are 1,086,285 families with 1,983,828 children.
Low-Income Children: 31% (620,598) of children live in low-income families (National:44%


Definitions
The demographic findings on this page were calculated using federal poverty thresholds issued by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more information about federal poverty thresholds, see the US Census website.
Child
A child is defined as an individual under the age of 18. Children living independently, living with a spouse, living in group quarters, and children ages 14 and under living with only unrelated adults are excluded from these data.
Low Income
Families and children are defined as low-income if the family income is less than twice the federal poverty threshold (see Poor).
Parent
A parent is defined as an individual over the age of 17 who lives with a dependent child. Among children who do not live with at least one parent, parental characteristics are those of the householder and/or the householder's spouse.
Poor
Families and children are defined as poor if family income is below the federal poverty threshold. The federal poverty threshold for a family of four with two children was $24,008 in 2014, $23,624 in 2013, and $23,283 in 2012.
