Understanding the Gap

Monthly feature

About 15 million or 21% of children in the United States live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level. Data shows that these children are more likely to drop out of school and not excel in their studies than those who come from families with higher incomes.

  • In Riverside, California, the percent of children aged 5 to 17 years old who live in families whose income is below the poverty level was 20.2% in 2017.
  • The average wage in Riverside is less than the living wage for families with one working parent.
