The spike in US child poverty explained#spike #child #poverty #explained

The child poverty rate in the United States more than doubled between 2021 and 2022, according to new data on poverty, income, and health insurance from the U.S. Census Bureau on Sept. 12. A year after the rate hit a historic low of 5.2 percent, the percentage of children living in poverty jumped to 12.4 percent. The bureau pointed to the end of the pandemic-era expansion of child tax credits in late 2021 as a critical factor in the dramatic increases. 

“This represents a return to child poverty levels prior to the pandemic,” Liana Fox, assistant division chief at the Census Bureau, said during a news conference, per the Associated Press. “We did see the child tax credit had a substantial decrease in child poverty.”
