New Data Indicates Child Poverty Down Slightly In Nebraska

New Data Indicates Child Poverty Down Slightly In Nebraska

Friday, the U.S. Census Bureau released new statistics from the American Community Survey that provide state and local data on Poverty and Health Insurance.

Earlier in the week, the Census Bureau released national data showing that the poverty rate nationally remained essentially unchanged while there was a decline in the number of children with health insurance nationally.

The data released today in Nebraska showed that from 2011 to 2012, the rate of Nebraska children in poverty dropped slightly from 18.1 percent in 2011 to 17.9 percent in 2012. Nebraskas number of children in poverty has still not recovered from the recession, and the rate of children living below the poverty line is still significantly higher than rates seen pre-2010.

Health insurance data released today showed that the rate of uninsured children rose slightly, from 5.9 percent in 2011 to 6.0 percent in 2012.
