Poverty

In 2014, 15 percent of Minnesotan children were living in poverty compared to a U.S. rate of 22 percent. 

Overall, poverty rates have increased from 2000 to 2010-2014 for many Minnesotan children, but vary significantly between different racial and ethnic groups. Black and American Indian children have seen the greatest increase in poverty rates while Asian (Hmong) children have seen a decrease. This indicator reflects the share of children living in families at or below the federal poverty line as calculated by the U.S. Census Bureau.

This document (.xlsx) provides the indicator data in table format.
