Each year, the Census Bureau releases poverty estimates for the nation as a whole and for each of the states. County level estimates, however, are produced less frequently.


This data sheet compares the results from the 1990 Census with 1998 county poverty estimates.


The web address for the data source in this update has changed from that on the hard copy.
