And Social Deprivation

Table 6.23:  Poverty and Child Poverty as Percent of All Persons in Poverty (Census 2K, SF3+ Indiana)

6.23 Poverty:  Child Poverty as Percent of All Persons in Poverty

Rather than comparing those in poverty to the total population of persons living in Jay County, another way to view poverty statistics is to study only those people who are living in poverty.  For example, in Indiana statistically for every 100 persons in poverty, 11 will be ages 0-4, 2 will be 5 years old, 11 will be ages 6-11, and 9 will be 12-17, making fully 33% of the persons in poverty aged 17 and younger.  This following table compares this information for Jay County to Indiana and the nation.
