Title poverty_status_under_6
Abstract Children (0-5) below the federal poverty level
By Minnesota counties, 2007-2016. Tabular data acquired from Minnesota Compass and appended to shapefile by NRRI.
Purpose Notes:

A value of "N/A" indicates that data are unavailable, an estimate is unreliable, or data are suppressed because too few cases were recorded in the time period.

Poverty status was determined for all people except institutionalized people, people in military group quarters, people in college dormitories, and unrelated individuals under 15 years old (including foster children). These groups were excluded from the numerator and denominator when calculating poverty rates.

The Census Bureau uses a set of dollar value thresholds that vary by family size and composition to determine who is in poverty. For example, for a family interviewed in July 2016, the federal poverty threshold was about $24,153 for a family consisting of two adults and two minor children. The poverty threshold for a family of this size and composition will vary slightly depending on the month in which the family member was interviewed. For more information see: http://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/tech_docs/subject_definitions/2016_ACSSubjectDefinitions.pdf

ACS five-year estimates are based on data collected over five years, and therefore describe average characteristics for that five-year time period.
