Final Answer

Hello there,As promised, I am back with the final version of the task. As you will be able to see, I used your provided outline as a support for this paper. Imagine your outline as the skeleton based on which I added information in order to stay on the subject. In total, the paper has 2587 words that meet your professor's requirements. The paper starts with an introduction to the topic (as in any research paper), followed by discussions in regard to the poverty rate in the U.S, Albania, and Haiti. At this point, the reader should have a general image of what poverty means in each country. The next part of the essay discusses human rights in the three countries (since the approach of poverty should be from the human rights point of view). Nevertheless, it discusses the relations between the three countries (imagines this part as the bridge between all the information which was previously state). The paper ends with a conclusion which points out the importance of fighting poverty and how the countries are affected. As you will see, the paper also discusses the agencies and programs which fight this issue.In order to write this paper, I used 11 references which are all from academic resources and are newer than 2010(as instructed by your professor). I know how important is to deliver original papers in the academic field and due to that I always write my own works. This ensures that the essay you receive from me are always free of plagiarism and are never uploaded on any other website. This means that through this message you become the sole owner of this paper.It was a pleasure working with you and I hope you enjoyed reading the paper I wrote for you. I tried my best to make sure that it includes all the required information. I also took into consideration your provided outline because I didn't want to deliver a work that was not related to it (in the end, your professor agreed with your outline which means that your paper needs to be written based on it). Looking forward to working with you again, and sorry that I was not able to deliver the paper even earlier.

Poverty in the US, Albania, and Haiti

Poverty is one of the socioeconomic issues that affect millions of people across the globe.
It refers to the inability of a person to access basic needs such as it is the case of food, shelter,
clean drinking water, poor sanitation healthcare, education, and other social services. World
Bank developed non-income dimensions of poverty indicators, which are education, healthcare,
access to social services, social exclusion, vulnerability, and access to social capital. Based on
these parameters, a poor person can be identified as a person that has less income to purchase the
basic needs such as clothing, food, and shelter, among other essentials. The cost of living is
geographically dependent such that in the US, people who are classified as poor in San Francisco
might not be considered poor if they lived in Clay County, Kentucky. Poverty can also be
defined as a chronic and debilitating condition that arises from many synergistic risk factors and
affects one's state of mind, body, and soul. The risk factors associated with poverty can affect the
socio-emotional, physical, and cognitive wellbeing of children and their families (Pillow-Price,
US Poverty Rate
According to a 2017 report that was released by the US Census Bureau, the country
poverty rate was estimated at 12.3%. The report further states that according to the 2017 about
39.7 million Americans were living in poverty by 2017. In 2018, the poverty rate dropped by 0.5
percent to 11.8%, which confirms the declining poverty rate in the US. The number of poor
people decreased in 2018 to 38.1 million, which is 1.4 million fewer people as compared to 2017
(Deaton, 2018). Americans living rural areas are considered a true face of poverty, especially in



those living in Southwest regions where the living standards are a bit lower and unemployment
rate is relatively high. Seven states in the US with the highest poverty rates are located in the
South of country and they include; Mississippi (20.8% of population under the line of poverty);
Louisiana (20%), Kentucky (18.5%), West Virginia (17.9%), Arkansas (17.2%), Alabama
(17.1%) and Georgia (16%) lead the way. The other three states are from the ...
