Demographics and the Economy
This category includes information on demographics (population by age, gender, race/ethnicity), income (people in poverty by demographic grouping, median family income), and state fiscal distress (unemployment, food stamp participation, foreclosures).
Please note, the majority of health coverage data posted to this site is now based on analysis of the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS). In the past, these data had used the Current Population Survey (CPS). We have replaced all previously-posted data, including data for prior years, with data based on ACS. ACS includes a 1% sample of the US population and allows for precise state-level estimates as well as longer trend analyses.
Select a subcategory on the left to see how the indicators compare across the states. Results will be shown as a table, map, or trend graph as available.
