Poverty Rates by Living Arrangements: 2000, 2007 & 2012

Poverty Rates by Living Arrangements: 2000, 2007 & 2012

The following is the Beverly LaHaye Institute’s December 2013 Data Digest, which charts poverty rates by living arrangements. This new data, based on analyses of U.S. Census Bureau information, shows that increases in poverty from 2000 to 2012 have disproportionately affected non-married households, especially female-headed families where there is no husband present. From 2000 to 2012, the poverty rate for persons in female-headed families (i.e., non-spousal person, or “nsp”) increased from 28.5 percent to 33.9 percent; the poverty rate for persons in male-headed families (nsp) increased from 10.8 percent to 17.4 percent; the poverty rate for persons in married-couple families increased from 5.5 percent to 7.5 percent.
