What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of people under the age of 18 who are living below the federal poverty level.
Why this is important: 
Family income has been shown to affect a child's well-being in numerous studies. Compared to their peers, children in poverty are more likely to have physical health problems like low birth weight or lead poisoning, and are also more likely to have behavioral and emotional problems. Children in poverty also tend to exhibit cognitive difficulties, as shown in achievement test scores, and are less likely to complete basic education.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,141 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
