Income, poverty levels hold steady in 2014, health insurance coverage up
According to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau, real median household income held steady in 2014 at $53,657, with no statistically significant difference over 2013 levels. The same was true of the official poverty rate, which has remained around 14.8 percent for four consecutive years. The report, Income, Poverty and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2014, also found that the percentage of people without health insurance coverage declined nearly 3 percentage points, falling from 13.3 percent in 2013 to 10.4 percent in 2014.
