Race, Place and Poverty Map

During 2008-10, 16.5 million civilian men age 18-44 in the United States lived in families with incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level; 15 million of these men did not have college degrees. Almost all low-income men lived in metropolitan areas, but their race and ethnicity, employment, marriage rates, and health insurance status varied from place to place. The map below displays the geographic variation in these characteristics of low-income men age 18-44 without bachelor's degrees living in 64 US metropolitan areas.
