According to the US Census Bureau report Poverty in the US 2002 there has been an increase of 17 million people living in poverty from 2001 to 2002 This means that 121 percent of our population lived in poverty in 2002 Also in 2002 96 percent of American families are lived in poverty which also increased by from 2001 Although these statistics show the poverty level in America it is very hard to classify who lives in poverty The statistics are not based on assessments of living quarters but on a food budget In fact in some extreme cases those who are classified as living in poverty own houses worth over 300000 This is because the food budget is based on family income not what has been acquired by other means I was very surprised to learn that people living in poverty could have houses worth more than my own It seems as if the government is not assessing those in poverty in the right manner I think it is unfair to give government funding to those who are living in houses that could easily provide enough money for that family to have a stable and comfortable living situation and bring them out of poverty It is because of individual circumstances like these that we will never know the true extent of poverty numbers in our country
