The poverty level is calculated as a percentage of the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold by dividing the respondent’s reported total family income by the appropriate poverty threshold amount. If a family’s total income is at or below the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold for the corresponding size and composition, then that family and every individual in it is considered to be living in poverty (i.e., less than 100 percent of the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold). Poverty level is a comparison of a respondent's total family income with the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold (both measured in dollar amounts) in order to determine the poverty status of the respondent and his or her family. Information on family income, size, and composition (i.e., number of children) is used to determine the respondent's poverty level. In addition, the measure for poverty level excludes respondents aged 18 to 22 who were living in a college dormitory. Total family income is less than 100 percent of the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold (i.e., total family income is below poverty threshold). Total family income is between 100 and 199 percent of the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold (i.e., total family income is at or above the poverty threshold but is less than twice the poverty threshold). Total family income is 200 percent or more of the U.S. Census Bureau poverty threshold (i.e., total family income is twice the poverty threshold or greater).
