Census: More Americans Poor And Uninsured
The latest Census Bureau report shows an increase in the number of Americans living in poverty or lacking health insurance, the Associated Press reported Aug. 26.
According to the report, 35.8 million people, or 12.5 percent of the population, lived below the poverty line in 2003, a 1.3-million increase over 2002. The increase was greater among children, with 12.9 million, or 17.6 percent of the under age-18 population, living in poverty in 2003.
Furthermore, 45 million people, or 15.6 percent of the population, didn't have health insurance in 2003, an increase of 1.4 million over the previous year.
The Census report also showed that the median household income remained flat in 2003, at $43,318.
Census Bureau analyst Dan Weinberg said the results were characteristic of a post-recession period.
It was the third straight year that both categories saw annual increases.
