Federal Poverty Level

The percent of women (15-44 years) and children (<19 years) below the federal poverty level is obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau. Data is collected by the Census using the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly survey of about 50,000 households. The sample is selected to represent the civilian non-institutional population. More background can be found at the CPS Web site.
