Supplementary notes

The U.S. Census Bureau uses a set of dollar value thresholds that vary by family size and composition to determine who is in poverty. A person under 65 living alone is considered poor, if the annual income is less than 11,344 U.S. dollars. This threshold is calculated for 2010.
