Census report doesn't capture extent of poverty
From CBS News
The U.S. Census Bureau's latest poverty report offers a broad overview on conditions in the U.S., but it is far from a complete picture. The methodology has come under such regular attack that the agency puts out another report every year using a different set of measurements. One problem with the Census report is that it uses the same income threshold to determine if a person or household is impoverished that has been in use since 1964. The only changes have been to adjust income levels for inflation. Currently, anyone earning less than $11,484 per year is considered to be living in poverty. For a family of four, the earnings threshold is $23,021 per year.
