100 Million Poor People In America And 39 Other Facts About Poverty That Will Blow Your Mind

Every single day more Americans fall into poverty.  This should deeply alarm you no matter what political party you belong to and no matter what your personal economic philosophy is.  Right now, approximately 100 million Americans are either "poor" or "near poor".  For a lot of people "poverty" can be a nebulous concept, so let's define it.  The poverty level as defined by the federal government in 2010 was $11,139 for an individual and $22,314 for a family of four.  Could you take care of a family of four on less than $2000 a month?  Millions upon millions of families are experiencing a tremendous amount of pain in this economy, and no matter what "solutions" we think are correct, the reality is that we all should have compassion on them.  Sadly, things are about to get even worse.  The next major economic downturn is rapidly approaching, and when it hits the statistics posted below are going to look even more horrendous.

When it comes to poverty, most Americans immediately want to get into debates about tax rates and wealth redistribution and things like that.

But the truth is that they are missing the main point.

The way we slice up the pie is not going to solve our problems, because the pie is constantly getting smaller.

Our economic infrastructure is being absolutely gutted, the U.S. dollar is slowly losing its status as the reserve currency of the world and we are steadily getting poorer as a nation.

Don't be fooled by the government statistics that show a very small amount of "economic growth".  Those figures do not account for inflation.

After accounting for inflation, our economic growth has actually been negative all the way back into the middle of the last decade.

According to numbers compiled by John Williams of shadowstats.com, our "real GDP" has continually been negative since 2005.

So that means we are getting poorer as a nation.

Meanwhile, we have been piling up astounding amounts of debt.

40 years ago the total amount of debt in the United States (government, business and consumer) was less than 2 trillion dollars.

Today it is nearly 55 trillion dollars.

So we have a massive problem.

Our economic pie is shrinking and millions of Americans have been falling out of the middle class.  Meanwhile, we have been piling up staggering amounts of debt in order to maintain our vastly inflated standard of living.  As our economic problems get even worse, those trends are going to accelerate even more.

So don't look down on the poor.  You might be joining them a lot sooner than you might think.

The following are 40 facts about poverty in America that will blow your mind....

#1 In the United States today, somewhere around 100 million Americans are considered to be either "poor" or "near poor".

#2 It is being projected that when the final numbers come out later this year that the U.S. poverty rate will be the highest that it has been in almost 50 years.

#3 Approximately 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be either "low income" or impoverished.

#4 Today, one out of every four workers in the United States brings home wages that are at or below the poverty level.

#5 According to the Wall Street Journal, 49.1 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives financial benefits from the government.  Back in 1983, that number was below 30 percent.

#6 It is projected that about half of all American adults will spend at least some time living below the poverty line before they turn 65.

#7 Today, there are approximately 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing.  That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.

#8 During 2010, 2.6 million more Americans fell into poverty.  That was the largest increase that we have seen since the U.S. government began keeping statistics on this back in 1959.

#9 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of "very poor" rose in 300 out of the 360 largest metropolitan areas during 2010.

#10 Since Barack Obama became president, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen by 6 million and the number of Americans on food stamps has risen by 14 million.

#11 Right now, one out of every seven Americans is on food stamps and one out of every four American children is on food stamps.

#12 It is projected that half of all American children will be on food stamps at least once before they turn 18 years of age.

#13 The poverty rate for children living in the United States is 22 percent, although when the new numbers are released in the fall that number is expected to go even higher.

#14 One university study estimates that child poverty costs the U.S. economy 500 billion dollars a year.

#15 Households that are led by a single mother have a 31.6% poverty rate.

#16 In 2010, 42 percent of all single mothers in the United States were on food stamps.

#17 According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, 36.4 percent of all children that live in Philadelphia are living in poverty, 40.1 percent of all children that live in Atlanta are living in poverty, 52.6 percent of all children that live in Cleveland are living in poverty and 53.6 percent of all children that live in Detroit are living in poverty.

#18 Since 2007, the number of children living in poverty in the state of California has increased by 30 percent.

#19 Child homelessness in the United States has risen by 33 percent since 2007.

#20 There are 314 counties in the United States where at least 30% of the children are facing food insecurity.

#21 More than 20 million U.S. children rely on school meal programs to keep from going hungry.

#22 A higher percentage of Americans is living in extreme poverty (6.7 percent) than has ever been measured before.

#23 If you can believe it, 37 percent of all U.S. households that are led by someone under the age of 35 have a net worth of zero or less than zero.

#24 A lot of younger Americans have found that they cannot make it on their own in this economy.  Today, approximately 25 million American adults are living with their parents.

#25 Today, one out of every six elderly Americans lives below the federal poverty line.

#26 Amazingly, the wealthiest 1 percent of all Americans own more wealth than the bottom 95 percent combined.

#27 The six heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have a net worth that is roughly equal to the bottom 30 percent of all Americans combined.

#28 At this point, the poorest 50% of all Americans now control just 2.5% of all of the wealth in this country.

#29 Back in 1980, less than 30% of all jobs in the United States were low income jobs.  Today, more than 40% of all jobs in the United States are low income jobs.

#30 Right now, the United States actually has a higher percentage of workers doing low wage work than any other major industrialized nation does.

#31 Half of all American workers earn $505 or less per week.

#32 In 1970, 65 percent of all Americans lived in "middle class neighborhoods".  By 2007, only 44 percent of all Americans lived in "middle class neighborhoods".

#33 Federal housing assistance outlays increased by a whopping 42 percent between 2006 and 2010.

#34 Approximately 50 million Americans do not have any health insurance at all right now.

#35 Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid.  Today, approximately one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid.

#36 It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.

#37 Back in 1990, the federal government accounted for 32 percent of all health care spending in America.  Today, that figure is up to 45 percent and it is projected to surpass 50 percent very shortly.

#38 Overall, the amount of money that the federal government gives directly to the American people has risen by 32 percent since Barack Obama entered the White House.

#39 It was recently reported that 1.5 million American families live on less than two dollars a day (before counting government benefits).

#40 The unemployment rate in the U.S. has been above 8 percent for 40 months in a row, and 42 percent of all unemployed Americans have been out of work for at least half a year.

Recently, I wrote a long article about why there will never be enough jobs in the United States ever again.

That means that a whole lot of Americans are not going to be able to take care of themselves.

As our economy gets even worse, there is going to be a tremendous need for more love, compassion and generosity all over the country.

Don't be afraid to lend a helping hand, because someday you may need one yourself.

    The U.S. is already a dictatorship:

    “The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public’s money.”
    ― Alexis de Tocqueville

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
    ― Alexis de Tocqueville

    “America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”
    ― Alexis de Tocqueville

    • dejayajay

      A democracy could exist permanently, IF it was structured like the Swill model, where Citizens’Initiated Referenda (direct democracy) is incorporated comprehensively, and at all levels of government.
      With this in place, citizens can see that the outcome of voting actually directs policies, so they have learned to take a strong interest in policy matters.
      Also, and equally as important, is the fact that politicians become servants of the people, not masters of the people. IE no more ‘elected dictatorship’.
      As a result, Switzerland is just about the only country remaining unscathed by the current world financial turmoil. Not to mention the fact that during WW2 it was the only country that remained free of conflict.

    There will always be starving people in the world because the rich don’t believe these people have value to them… If the will was there all people would be living happy fulfilling lives.

    • blueridgeviews

      What does anyone’s lot in life have to do with a rich person? Are you saying you can’t do anything because there is a rich person over there who owns x,y and z?
      That defeatist attitude is what is wrong with America today. Whether you believe you can or can’t YOU are right.

  • Ryan

    As a South African boy growing up in the 70′s I used to watch Dallas, Rich man poor man, Family ties, The Cosby show amongst others and we used to admire the American lifestyle. Everyone seemed to be living their American dream. It is sad to see that 100 million Americans today live in worst conditions than I do who lives in a developing country. I own my own 3 bedroom house with granny flat. My car 6 year old car is paid for. My kids are at a decent school and we go on holiday twice a year. I’m just an ordinary middle class South African. It is therefore sad to see this once mighty nation falling apart. It makes you ask where things went wrong? Something is surely wrong with the system when the top 5% can earn more than the bottom 95% combined. It is time for a revolution in the US.

    Don’t allow yourself to be fooled. Indeed there are some people who “only” get food stamps or “only” get WIC, or “only” get section 8 housing, or “only” get MEDICAID, or “only” get SS disability, or “only” get welfare cash payments, or “only” get free cell phones, free transportation, free childcare, free utilities in their section 8 housing, etc. But there are a LOT of people who get it all. They get so much for free they would have to earn $40,000 a year to have the same income. Ask yourself why 95% of our “poor” have color TV’s and 85% have more then one. Why 78% of our poor have a car and 50% have more then one. Why 60% of our poor have air conditioning. Why NONE of our poor are required to work to get these benefits and in fact the benefits are so good that you would be plain crazy to work and risk losing those free (tax payer paid) benefits. If you truely believe our “poor” do not get these things then you are naive and need to get the facts.

    • Gay Veteran

      yeah, those lucky duckies. must be great! to be poor

    • Alex Illi

      Surely they should have Black’n’White TVs!
      Maybe those are still to be found as collectors’ rarities.

      OK, but I get your point, poor is relative,
      I don’t really know the situation in the USA, being from Germany, living in rural Ghana -
      me, I don’t have air-condition (fan is better, anyway), no washing-machine, no running water, about half-day light-off every day…

      However, I think that those things the “poor” are still in possession of might be fading remnants from economically better times, perhaps not to be replaced anytime soon.
      I heard that the US-Americans like to shop like crazy (made possible by cheap ‘chinese’ goods and exploited ressources and low-wage labourers in developing countries) and if e.g. there was a birthday party, the child would get more gifts per anniversary than a german child during all of childhood and adolescence – so maybe the US-houses are just stuffed full with old things.

      Well, it’s time the industrialized, developed countries came off their “self-made” high horse and see where their wealth has come from (- on average still about 80 people are doing slave-like work to provide one German or American with cheap ressources and markets for processed goods manufactured thereoff -) because the arrogance many still use when speaking about “lazy” or “stupid” people in “developing” countries is nearly unbearable.

      • GoneWithTheWind

        I often see this sentiment expressed “Well, it’s time the industrialized, developed countries came off their “self-made” high horse and see where their wealth has come from (- on average still about 80 people are doing slave-like work to provide one German or American with cheap ressources and markets for processed goods manufactured thereoff -)” I can only assume your education did not include economics. So what is your solution to this horrible problem of Americans or Germans buying “cheap” products made overseas??? So if we didn’t buy them would these people doing “slave-like work” be better off? Should we prevent competition (kind of anti-democratic don’thca think) and legislate that everything be made by government approved factories where workers are paid union wages and have a full plate of benefits and 7 weeks vacation? But then wouldn’t there be more “poor”? Everyone not lucky enough to get one of the mandated union jobs with extravagant benefits would be paying 2 and 3 times as much for necessities and luxury goods. Would the quality of the goods be better? Maybe, maybe not but with higher wages they would certainly cost more and fewer people could afford them. How does this make everything better?

        By the way, I lived in Germany for four years sometime ago and loved the country and it’s people. Hope to get back there one day soon and spend some time visiting old haunts and sights.

    If you really want to know the fate of America/Babylon, get that dusty bible down off your shelf (that book most Americans think is a fairytale because most ‘churches’ were infiltraited by satan a long time ago and done much evil in the name of Jesus) and read Revelation chapters 17 and 18… This place has a target on it and there are ten nations that are going to make sure this ‘whore’ doesn’t ever spread her legs for anyone again. Which ten? Any guesses as to which they are?

  • VL

    The welfare/food stamp numbers are skewed. I know alot more people getting food stamps that don’t need it, but claim to be a “single parent”, than people that actually do need it. It’s easy to get welfare all you have to do is not marry your partner and pop out a bunch of babies you can’t afford, claim single parent status and voila! Welfare check in hand. The other easy way to get welfare is cross the border illegally, 75% of those on WIC (women infants children) are illegal. Which pisses me off considering we have our own citizens that actually do NEED it, but can’t get it because we have to pay for citizens of other countries who are now sucking it dry. And for those that are on welfare there are certain things you shouldn’t be allow to have like multiple flat screen tv’s, brand new cars, iphones, designer purses, because if you can AFFORD those things then you don’t need welfare and you are technically NOT poor.

      There are people out there that abuse the system. That’s my gripe. There’s a 30 year old man divorced paying child support (which he complains about) who lives near us in an large apartment complex that his Mother owns. He is the apartment “manager”, lives rent free, is on disability and food stamps. His disability doesn’t prevent him from picking up jobs that pay $2,000.00 (under the table) or driving a huge brand new truck. And we always wondered how the rich got that rich in the first place. Those are kind of people I don’t want using any kind of tax payer money. It also makes me wonder why I go to work for what seems to be less and less every week…

    Most poor people are poor for multiple reasons, including bad luck, medical problems, legal problems, being stuck in temporary bad situations, unattainable expectations from the mass media, living from day to day, stupidity, mental illness, laziness, dishonesty, selfishness, wanting something for nothing, character flaws, sociopath and psychopath personalities, poor ethical training, addiction, substance abuse, negative peer pressure, love of violence, and being born into families and cultures with the above problems. The government is unable to think in the long term, and makes matters worse with wasteful spending, foreign wars, the police state, illegal immigration, the permanent welfare way of life, housing subsidies, graft and corruption, out-of-control bureaucracies, over-regulation of small business employers, government restrictions on land use, not taxing all financial transactions, allowing corporations to permanently ship technology and jobs overseas for short term profits, and giving money to harmful corporations, special interest groups, and influential allied countries. There is absolutely nothing any responsible person can do to correct any of these problems. Each person should work out his own individual solutions, like living in a safe area and practicing tax avoidance. Act locally.

    Jobs, jobs, jobs is the answer. But, who in hell is going to open the factories back when they can go or stay overseas and make the product for pennies on the dollar. You can blame this and that and this and that. Without jobs it ALL has to come down and it is just about ready to topple soon enough..

  • Max

    Must take exception to #21. It is a VERY rare child who eats their “public assisted” breakfast and lunch at school. They keep the soft drink for breakfast, and fries for lunch.
    All the rest of that food? Right in the garbage!!! I’ve been there and with disgust witnessed those kids dump their free (well, free to THEM!) food.

    Yes, times are tight, but only on those who through being taxed, supply all that free food. I also really enjoy the free “coats for kids”, “coats for the poor”, etc. programs. They drive-up in an SUV that is sparkling new, go through all the coats, take more than they need, and then sell the rest!!
    AND they come back day after day to check out the new inventory and then sell that too!
    Yes, seen that first hand too. Disgusting. What do those nice SUV’s run on? It’s too dangerous having a “disadvantaged” person driving on bald summer tires, so they get a voucher for free (FREE TO THEM!!) tires! If you think I’m a bitter rich person then guess again. In four days my employer will “right-size” me. That’s right. No income, no food stamps, no free tires. I’m sick of looking at the welfare Cadillac!

  • John

    My parents came to this country as immigrants with all the disadvantages that title offers. They only had one advantage. That advantage was not having an American mindset. See most Americans can’t even imagine raising a family of 4 on less then $20,000. My father raised us on no more then 16,000 (that’s the highest he ever made, usually it was less). We never went hungry and we always had a place to live. All this without any government handouts!

    Most Americans don’t know how to spend money which is one of the many reasons most poor people stay poor. I will concede that there are some that are victims of their circumstance or bad luck. However, most Americans stay poor by their own hand.

    My parent’s poor financial standing, my different background, coming to this country at 11 (meaning every American kid had an 11 year head start on me) and not speaking a lick of English should have meant that I was destined to be poor.

    However, I worked hard and had a long term plan. I didn’t get involved with gangs or drugs. I also didn’t spend my money on stupid and wasteful purchases that 90% of America thinks of as essentials.

    Currently, I’m 28 with only a high school diploma and this year I made 130K. 3 years ago I only made 53K and still was able to support the lifestyle that I have now. Just my mortgage alone is 2400 a month. So 3 years ago that was 54% of my income. And guess what? That year when I made 53K I paid my mortgage on time, I still saved 10K, was driving a new sports car, took my vacations, went on date night with my wife every week etc.

    It’s possible with good money management. I did all the things above but made sacrifices in areas where I didn’t deem important. It’s all about how much effort you put into bettering you situation. I had no help, hookups, handout or exceptional luck and I was able to make it. So I don’t have too much sympathy for most poor people.

    I can justify my stance on “no sympathy” because I grew up poor and saw first hand why most people in America are poor. Here are some questions that came to me about the people around me when I was living poor.

    -If your poor and have no money why are you spending your money on smokes and booze??
    -If your poor and have no money why do you have cable?
    -If your poor and have no money why is your AC on when your not home? Or better yet why run up the bill when you can use a fan?
    -If your poor and have no money why are you buying holiday gifts?
    -If your poor and have no money why are you buying brand name food instead of the alternatives?
    -If your poor and have no money why are you eating out? (And I count even cheap eating like McDonalds as eating out)
    -If your poor and have no money why do you go out to the movies, mall, bars etc.
    -If your poor and have no money why do you have brand name cloth and shoes?
    -If your poor and have no money why are you buying useless accessories for your car?
    -If your poor and have no money why are you throwing birthday parties for your kids?
    -If your poor and have no money why do you have more then 1 TV?
    -If your poor and have no money why do you have a video game console?

    The list goes on and on. Cutting most of that waste would lead to saving of anywhere from $300-$500 a month. That would equal a savings of 13.84%-23% of your income if we go by median income of 26K! In the long run this lifestyle will get you out of poverty and you can indulge in the things I listed above. And yes I sacrificed EVERYTHING I listed above for most of my time in the USA because I knew that would let me get way ahead in the long run. What I have observed is that most Americans including the poor have the “keeping up with the joneses” mindset.

    Even when they can barely scrape by they have to have that $80 pair of Nikes for their three year old who has no clue what the hell Nike is. They feel “hey if the rich can have this and that, I want at least want a little of that.” What they fail to understand is that most self made rich people got where they are at by making sacrifices. So again I have zero sympathy for most poor people. I can confidently say that AT LEAST 50% of the current poor could easily get out of their situation if they put in any actual effort.

    Slavery is alive and well in this country, it just has another name….taxes, regulations, mandates, restrictions, fines….the list goes on and on as to how governments can rip off the citizens. Try running any type of business these days in this country (especially in California or the NE) and experience the tidal wave of BS that one has to adhere to and then wonder why our jobs are in China, Mexico and India. Between government burdensome regulations/mandates/restrictions and labor unions demanding more and more, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out why we are in the mess we are in in this country. There is NOT WAY our standard of living can be restored without a manufacturing economy. Service jobs may put some food on the table but in no way will ever pay a mortgage.

    The simple fact that is hidden by govt statistics and mainstream zombies is that the USA along with the western world is on a precipice. All the signs are there including the impoverishment of formerly dominant nations. Dispute it or not, we are on the brink of the largest economic slowdown in modern history. Everyone has someone different to blame and I wont voice my opinion here as its a moot point. Just as in the 20′s we have had years of financial and social largesse and its time for the pendulum to swing inexorably back. An economic depression is just getting started and if you cannot see that then what more can I say?

    It’s Reagan who started this national sucide with his exporting of tens of millions Middle Class factory jobs and the importing of 38,000,000 illegal aliens who are now stealing nearly 100% of all new low-end jobs. The high-end jobs are going to HlB visa holders…With Obama and Romney, there are no solutions and the economy will collapse.

  • blueskyhuman

    Since, at the moment at least, there does not seem to be any consensus of support for the sort of mass action it would take to “End the Fed” it does not seem likely that we will wake up tomorrow or any day soon to find that we have changed rulers in any meaningful way.Regime change is probably not possible at this time.
    Given that, what else is there to do on a Friday Night? Check out Chalkupy and The Overpass Light Brigade for some beautiful protests, but even protest is not enough. We need to start finding ways of investing collectively and individually in creating the infrastructure of a sustainable society. That means businesses, lots and lots of them, providing goods and services, paying employees…all that good stuff. Sounds pretty scary…We need to build the businesses that won’t be outsourced to replace the ones that already were and create new products and services to build a bridge to a liveable future.

  • http://malaysiandemocracy.wordpress.com/ AgreeToDisagree

    Nonsense. USA could simply distribute all unused land , and tell the people to grow their own crops and build their own houses, raise their own livestock, make their own leather or fur goods, compost their own sewage, collect their own rainwater or dig their own wells. End of problem, everyone gets a few acres. BTW there is no such thing as money. There is no such thing as economy or collapse. Too bad for the plutocracy or corporatocracy though! Even if education was free now, citizens will return to 1400s settler-era America! Citizens please elect ONLY a President or Governor with the above intent. Executive Order 0 (Zero) for land distribution will be that reset button America needs.

    BTW there is no such thing as poor people, concept of money or a Global Financial System or a recession.

  • http://www.facebook.com/debbie.niemeyer Debbie Niemeyer

    THANK YOU. But it’s not a republican or democrat issue. The main fault seems to be emanating from the poverty line calculation. It’s a miscalcuation of the poverty line for individuals and families. People in government more than big business are purposely keeping more of us poor inorder to control our lives and our destiny. I wish who ever wrote this article would ask Bill Maher or some network to invite him/her on thier show and talk about this if he / she agrees with this post. PLEASE HELP US ALL. Poor or not…we are heading towards a mediocrity and more socialism. Poverty is mediocrity. Poverty is- more government control on all of us. Help us! Dramatic, yes, but we NEED some help over this very IGNORED issue.
