Between 2007 and 2010, 20 states -- including California, Florida, Oregon, Nevada and Michigan -- saw over a 20 percent rise in the poverty rate. In 2007, 13 percent of households earned less than $22,350; in 2010, that figure rises to 15.3 percent.
Adding insult to injury, median income fell by over 7 percent in 16 states over the same period. In 2007, the average family of four had a household of income of $53,347, adjusting for 2010 dollars. In 2010, that average dropped to $50,046. Check out the full infographic below. Are you surprised that poverty rates and median incomes haven't improved since the recession ended?
