People Living in Poverty by Race/Ethnicity, 2013-17

What does this measure?

The estimated proportion of people in various racial and ethnic groups with incomes below the poverty line. Poverty thresholds vary by family composition and year. In 2017, the threshold for a four-person family with two children was $24,858.

Why is this important?

The percentage of people in poverty in various race and ethnic groups is a measure of the overall economic health of these groups. It also indicates the level of need for social and government supports.

How is the region performing?

In 2013-17, poverty rates in the Mid-Hudson Valley were highest among Black or African American residents, at 20%, followed by Hispanic residents (17%), white residents (10%), and Asian residents (8%). The differences between the groups were similar to those at the statewide (excluding NYC) and national levels, though the poverty rates among both African American and Asian residents were each 3-4 percentage points lower than the state. Poverty rates for both African American residents and Hispanic residents were each 5 points lower than the nation, and for Asian residents, 4 points lower. From 2000 through 2013-17, poverty rates decreased a bit for all groups in the region except white residents, for whom the rate increased 2 points. The rate declined 4 points for Asian residents, 3 points for African American residents and 2 points for Hispanic residents.

Among counties with statistically reliable results, the Hispanic poverty rate varied widely, from 16% in Dutchess to 26% in Sullivan and Ulster. The rate for white residents was highest in Sullivan County, at 14%. The populations in most local areas, when broken down by race and ethnicity, were too small to yield reliable survey results.

Notes about the data

The multiyear figures are from the Census Bureau's American Community Survey. The bureau combined five years of responses to the survey to provide estimates for smaller geographic areas and increase the precision of its estimates. However, because the information came from a survey, the samples responding to the survey were not always large enough to produce reliable results, especially in small geographic areas. CGR has noted on data tables the estimates with relatively large margins of error. Estimates with three asterisks have the largest margins, plus or minus 50% or more of the estimate. Two asterisks mean plus or minus 35%-50%, and one asterisk means plus or minus 20%-35%. For all estimates, the confidence level is 90%, meaning there is 90% probability the true value (if the whole population were surveyed) would be within the margin of error (or confidence interval). For some small areas, Census did not have enough data to report results at all and N/A is shown in the data table.

The survey provides data on characteristics of the population that used to be collected only during the decennial census. Poverty status is not reported for people in institutions, including college dormitories and military barracks, and people in living situations without conventional housing. Data for this indicator are expected to be released in the fourth quarter.

Notes: Data not shown where sample sizes were too small. Multiyear results are from rolling American Community Survey. * Margin of error between 20% & 35% of estimate; ** margin of error between 35% & 50%; *** margin of error greater than 50%. The Census Bureau asks people to identify their race (white, African-American, etc.) separate from their ethnicity (Hispanic or non-Hispanic). So the totals for these categories cannot be added together, as people show up in both a racial and ethnic group.

Notes: Data not shown where sample sizes were too small. Multiyear results are from rolling American Community Survey. * Margin of error between 20% & 35% of estimate; ** margin of error between 35% & 50%; *** margin of error greater than 50%. The Census Bureau asks people to identify their race (white, African-American, etc.) separate from their ethnicity (Hispanic or non-Hispanic). So the totals for these categories cannot be added together, as people show up in both a racial and ethnic group.
