Poverty and Retirement Income
Households By Poverty Status. The Census Bureau each year sets a national poverty line based upon the number of family members. The poverty line for a family of four in 1990 was $12,674. The Bureau also breaks the poverty line into two broad age groups; those 0 to 64 and those 65 and older. This allows you to study separately the extent of poverty in the senior population.
Above Poverty Line (Householder Age 0 to 64): The number and percentage of households above the poverty line and between the ages of 0 and 64.
Above Poverty Line (Householder Age 65 and Older): The number and percentage of households above the poverty line and 65 years of age or older.
Below Poverty Line (Householder Age 0 to 64): The number and percentage of households below the poverty line and between the ages of 0 and 64.
Below Poverty Line (Householder Age 65 and Older): The number and percentage of households below the poverty line and 65 years of age or older.
