This report presents selected social, physical, economic, and housing cost characteristics of low-income households. Low-income households are defined as households with incomes below the poverty threshold. The report also examines households living just above poverty. These households have incomes between 100 and 124 percent of the poverty level. Although fewer in number, they tend to display similar characteristics as those below poverty. In this report, they are referred to as "at risk" or "near low-income" households. Of all income groups above the threshold, these households may be most at risk of falling into poverty.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
