Quello è su 6.8% from the year before.
The poverty rate fell to 10.5% l'anno scorso, the lowest since 1959, Census said. That’s down about 1.3 punti percentuali in 2018. Alcuni 34 million were in poverty, 4.2 million fewer than the year before.
All these gains, tuttavia, were upended by the coronavirus pandemic this year, che ha portato al steepest decline in employment in registrazione. While millions of jobs have come back, alcuni 13.6 milioni di americani remained unemployed in agosto.
    The Census Bureau indicated that the pandemic affected its collection of data this year.
    Questa è una storia di rottura e verrà aggiornata.
