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 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, 2011).
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 below the poverty line);



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 Southwest, which
are New Mexico (19.8%), Arizona (16.4%), and Oklahoma (16.3%). These areas have a long
history of poverty, and the main reason is that they were agricultural economies, and education
and innovation were not so emphasized.
Researchers have asserted that the positive and negative trend in poverty in the US can be
explained by factors such as changes in the composition of households, immigration, increased
skills and education of the poor, economic growth, and the welfare system`s generosity.
Important factors that have caused an increase in the poverty population share can be traced to
the rapid growth of households headed by unrelated indiv...
