News from EPI ICYMI—EPI analysis of the Census data on income and poverty, nationally and by state

Yesterday, the Census Bureau released its annual data on income, earnings, poverty, and health insurance, giving us a picture of the economic status of working families 10 years since the start of the Great Recession—and in the first year of the Trump presidency. Today, the Census Bureau released data on state poverty levels and income levels from the American Community Survey, which gives us a more detailed picture of how states have fared in the economic recovery.

Economists at EPI wrote a series of blog posts analyzing the Census data, which are compiled below. Please contact if you are interested in speaking with any of our experts about their findings.
