UNITED WAY ALICE REPORT 2017
2016: Living Below Poverty Level
2016: ALICE Threshold
The United Way produced the ALICE report in 2017. ALICE is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed – households that earn more than the Federal Poverty Level, but less than the basic cost of living for the county (the ALICE Threshold). Combined, the number of ALICE and poverty-level households equals the total population struggling to afford basic needs.
Median household income is $12,200 below the state average, unemployment is higher, and measures of poverty are higher.
