-BREAKING ECONOMIC NEWS September 14, 2016
The following story is the actual release from the U.S. Census allowing you the reader to see the story as they intended. Its important because the 98% of MSM owned by White Conservatives will quickly bring up the lie that nobody’s feeling it and there are 46 million people living in poverty and that’s simply no true. Obama a reduced those on Food Stamps from 28 million in 2007 to 2.3 million adults and 2.2 million children on WIC(USDA).
Obama knows at the end of the day whites who hate him cause he’s black can’t deny his economic record. Put simply, this president has grown our GDP a record 45% from where it was in September of 2008($17T GDP). On pace for 20 million jobs and 95% of working families covered in the Affordable Care Act. Not to mention 60% in crease is exports and oil production making the US number one for the fist time ever. Oh, and we’re number one in Green Energy to boot.
According to the report, we’ve seen income growth since 2007, being that its 2016 why are we just now finding this out? But this is how they treat this President who they simply can’t stand because of his race. That said, its better late than never so we wont’ trip over getting this information at this time.
The Black Talk Radio, Obama hasn’t done anything for black folks crowd would love to know that the household income for blacks is up 2.1% over last year but the real number is since 2007 black families have seen an steady increase since 2008 with 94% of black families living in the middle class. Here’s the data:
In 2015, 5.4 percent of married-couple families, 28.2 percent of families with a female householder, and 14.9 percent of families with a male householder lived in poverty. For married-couple families and families with a female householder, both the poverty rate and the number in poverty decreased. For families with a male householder, neither the poverty rates nor the number in poverty showed any statistically significant change between 2014 and 2015.
SEPT. 13, 2016 — The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that real median household income increased by 5.2 percent between 2014 and 2015 while the official poverty rate decreased 1.2 percentage points. At the same time, the percentage of people without health insurance coverage decreased.
Median household income in the United States in 2015 was $56,516, an increase in real terms of 5.2 percent from the 2014 median income of $53,718. This is the first annual increase in median household income since 2007, the year before the most recent recession.
The nation’s official poverty rate in 2015 was 13.5 percent, with 43.1 million people in poverty, 3.5 million fewer than in 2014. The 1.2 percentage point decrease in the poverty rate from 2014 to 2015 represents the largest annual percentage point drop in poverty since 1999.
The percentage of people without health insurance coverage for the entire 2015 calendar year was 9.1 percent, down from 10.4 percent in 2014. The number of people without health insurance declined to 29.0 million from 33.0 million over the period.
These findings are contained in two reports: Income and Poverty in the United States: 2015 and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States: 2015. The Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement was conducted nationwide and collected information about income and health insurance coverage during the 2015 calendar year. The Current Population Survey, sponsored jointly by the U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, is conducted every month and is the primary source of labor force statistics for the U.S. population; it is used to calculate the monthly unemployment rate estimates. Supplements are added in most months; the Annual Social and Economic Supplement questionnaire is designed to give annual, national estimates of income, poverty and health insurance numbers and rates.
Another Census Bureau report, The Supplemental Poverty Measure: 2015, was also released today. With support from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it describes research showing a different way of measuring poverty in the United States and includes estimates for numerous demographic groups, including state-level estimates. The supplemental poverty measure serves as an additional indicator of economic well-being and provides a deeper understanding of economic conditions. The Census Bureau has published poverty estimates using this supplemental measure annually since 2011. Since September 2015, the supplemental poverty measure has been released the same day as the official poverty estimates.
The Current Population Survey-based income and poverty report includes comparisons with the previous year and to 2007 (before the last recession); historical tables in the report contain statistics back to 1959. The health insurance report is based on both the Current Population Survey and the American Community Survey and includes comparisons with the previous year. State and local income and poverty estimates, as well as local health insurance coverage estimates, will be released Thursday, Sept. 15, from the American Community Survey.
