About the Rankings

The Census Bureau has released the latest estimates from the American Community Survey for all cities in the country with a population of 60,000 or more with sufficient data to estimate the poverty rate. We have crunched the numbers and the rankings are in. See the 602 places with the lowest poverty rate below, and the highest poverty rate places at the bottom of the list.

Poverty can bring with it many problems: crime, poor housing conditions, low education, and more. In the US, the poverty status is determined at the family level. If the family income is below a threshold, the entire family is considered to be in poverty. The threshold is set by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and varies depending on family size, composition, and age. See which areas of the country have done the most to reduce poverty in the list below.

The national poverty rate from the latest estimates is 13.4% and has fallen 4.6% from 14.0%.
