New Fact Sheet on Child Poverty Data and SNAP

CLASP has created a new fact sheet which interprets the newly released 2012 U.S. Census poverty data. 

They have found:
  • Nearly 6 million young kids (almost 1 in 4 under age 6) live in poor households
  • The number of children in poverty has increased by nearly 3 million and 6% since 2007
  • If SNAP benefits had been counted as income in the official rate, they would have lifted 4 million people out of poverty 
For more information, see the new fact sheet.
