When does the sun go down? When does it rise? What are the biggest myths about it?
By Michael K. Lee and Michael Laris – Posted May 29, 2018 06:10:00More than two years into the 2020 census, there are still more than 4 million people living in poverty in the US.
The US Census Bureau released a report last week that estimates the population in 2020 to be at a record high of 5.1 million.
That’s almost two-thirds of the population.
But while the census numbers aren’t all that surprising, the number of people living below the poverty line is not.
The poverty rate in the United States was last at 13.7 percent in 2020, according to a study from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a left-leaning think tank.
That means the poorest Americans live in the richest country in the world.
The study says that the poverty rate has fallen by nearly a third in the past 10 years, from a peak of 22.6 percent in 2007.
The Census Bureau data does not provide data on household size, so the figure may be higher.
The Pew Research Center estimated that 4.1 percent of the US population lives below the official poverty line, the federal government’s cutoff for a family of four that includes a single parent.
The Census Bureau also estimated that about 1.8 million people live in poverty, or 3.3 percent of those who were living at or below the federal poverty line in 2020.
For the US, the official rate of poverty is $22,858 per year for a single person, $32,972 for a couple, $41,746 for a trio and $68,931 for a quintet.
That means the number for the nation’s poorest Americans is now close to the rate for all Americans.
The poverty rate for single people has fallen from 22.7 to 12.7 per cent since 2007.
But the rate of growth in the number living in the poverty class has been more uneven.
The rate of increase in the rate in poverty is the lowest in 20 years, Pew reported.
The report also said that there are 2.4 million people with incomes less than $11,500, or 15.3 per cent of the total US population.
The report does not break down income by household size or by race.
The biggest myths surrounding the number people living at the poverty level are about the sun going down, the moon going down and how long it takes to get from one place to another.
The moon does not go down at night, said Andrew Durbin, the director of the Brookings Institution’s National Security and Foreign Policy Program.
The sun does, he said.
The moon doesn’t come up during the night, he added.
The sun does come up at certain times, but it usually takes longer for the moon to go up than it does for the sun to go down, he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
