Making ends meet can be tough, especially if you reside in some of America’s poorest cities. From high unemployment and low wages to rising house prices, many Americans are living below the poverty line barely scraping enough money to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table.
24/7 Wall St. reviewed data from the Census Bureau’s 2019 American Community Survey to determine the poorest city in each state. They analyzed 621 U.S. cities, towns, municipalities, and Census-designated places with available data to formulate the results. Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming had no cities covered in the 2019 Census report, and so were excluded from the analysis. According to 24/7 Wall St., these are the poorest cities in every state based on household earnings.
