The poverty report for 2013 recently released by the Census Bureau indicates that the povertyrate was 14.5% in 2013, lower than the 15.0 rate in 2011, but well above the 12.3% rate in 2006, the

year prior to the beginning of the ‘Great Recession.’ The continued high poverty rate reflects the Great Recession’s continuing negative impact on employment and income. Overall, 45.3 million people were poor in 2013, 14.7 million children (<age 18), and 30.7 million adults.
