West Virginia may have the highest home ownership rate in the country, but it also has the highest percentage of people living in trailer parks and dilapidated buildings.

You see that? The Asians are outpacing white Americans in Household Median income! That MUST mean that we're being oppressed! Affirmative action!

@ Burton_Ian - they need to update their webpage then. Remember the fuferall when Bush lowered the poverty level so he could claim there were fewer poor people. Family of four earning $19,something is where it is now, I believe.

The official Bureau of Labor Statistics threshold for poverty is a joke... Many economists and sociologist agree that a poverty level for a family of four being $22,113 for a family of four and $11,344 is FAR too low (that is, if you were living alone and making $15k you wouldn't technically be in poverty, according to federal guidelines).

In response to this, many sociologist use a larger threshold, so the amount of persons who are within poverty would likely be larger than those in the 1960`s.
