U.S. Census Bureau's New Annual Report on PovertyBy FAI
The U.S. Census Bureau just released its annual report on income, poverty, and health insurance coverage. A lot of ink will be spilled over the finding that median income fell, inequality increased, but poverty rates held constant.
Behind these aggregate numbers there are a lot of unanswered questions about how people in the U.S. with incomes at the median and below manage their financial lives. How do the people represented in these aggregate numbers make ends meet? What financial services do they use? What financial services do they need.
