Indicators & Data from the Half in Ten Annual Report
Choose an issue or key indicator to see how different states are performing over time:

The state and congressional district-level data distributed by the Census’s American Community Survey include rates for demographic subgroups (African Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americans, and Latino Americans). The poverty rates for these demographic sub-groups should be interpreted with care because due to relatively small sample sizes for these groups, there are sometimes wide margins of error around the calculated poverty rates. This is particularly true in low-population states and districts. For more guidance on interpreting the Half in Ten indicators and rankings, please see our data guide.
