California Poverty by County and Legislative District
These interactive maps show average poverty rates from the first quarter of 2023 for counties, congressional districts, state senate districts, and state assembly districts, according to the California Poverty Measure (CPM). The CPM is a joint research effort between PPIC and the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality that, unlike the official poverty measure, takes into account the cost of living and resources from social safety net programs. See Poverty in California: Technical Appendices for regional definitions and adapted methods used in the CPM as compared to pre-pandemic years.
This research was supported with funding from the Blue Shield of California Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, and Tipping Point Community.
