On the Edge in the Empire State: New York's Low-Income Children

Chau, Michelle M.; Dinan, Kinsey Alden; Fass, Sarah

This fact sheet shows that families in New York are struggling despite small family sizes and high rates of parental employment. More than two out of every five children in New York State live in low-income families. Low-income rates are even higher in New York City, where more than half of the children live in low-income families.
