In the United States, the number of people living in poverty is shrinking, but the pace of the decline is accelerating.
Between 2005 and 2015, the share of Americans living in families with incomes below the poverty line fell by more than 20 percentage points, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau.
While the decline has been steady over that period, it’s been a steady one, and now it’s accelerating again.
In some states, such as New York, the trend is especially alarming, said James Fenton, an associate professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley.
In New York City, for example, the poverty rate has dropped by almost a third in the last five years, and the poverty ratio has dropped from 11 percent to 8.6 percent, Fenton said.
New York’s poverty rate peaked in 2008, when it was 20.9 percent, and dropped to 8 percent in 2016.
New York’s rate of poverty has continued to decline in recent years, but Fenton expects the rate to remain below the national average.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, New York has lost more than 1 million jobs since 2008.
The state’s unemployment rate rose from 8.5 percent in 2008 to 9.9% in 2017.
The decline in poverty, however, is not a simple matter of people losing their jobs.
Poverty is defined as living in households where one or more workers do not earn enough to support a family, and it often has a direct effect on the families’ economic well-being.
According the Bureau, in 2016, 8.9 million people in New York lived in families in which no one earned more than $23,856 a year.
Of those, about 3.6 million lived in poverty.
More than 4.6 billion people worldwide live in families where one of the people in the household earns less than $24,200 a year, according the United Nations.
In many countries, families that do not have a single member in poverty live longer, healthier and wealthier lives, according a recent report from the University at Buffalo.
But there are other factors that may also contribute to the drop in poverty rates.
New data from Gallup, for instance, shows that a lot of Americans are living with their parents or living with roommates, which may have a negative effect on poverty rates for both parents.
More broadly, a lot more Americans are getting a good education, and that is leading to lower levels of poverty and more people living well off.
The U.N. also reports that in 2016 there were more than 4 million Americans living on incomes of $25,000 or less.
And more than 2.2 million Americans have a bachelor’s degree or higher.
Many people also live in urban areas, which tend to have better job opportunities and better pay.
For example, people in metropolitan areas like New York and Los Angeles have more access to healthcare, which has helped reduce poverty rates and lower health care costs for many people.
The U.K. also has one of Europe’s most successful economies and has seen an overall decline in inequality.
However, the percentage of its population living in extreme poverty has risen over the last three decades.
The United States and Canada, which have also experienced dramatic income growth in recent decades, have seen their poverty rates drop, but they remain above the global average.
In the U., for example:There are a lot fewer people living at or below the median income in both the United Kingdom and Canada.
But there are also fewer people in those countries with the same level of income as in the United State.
The trend in the U, which was not as dramatic as in other countries, is one that should be welcomed, said David C. Campbell, an assistant professor at the New York University School of Law.
The number of Americans who are poor is actually going up, and there is a good chance that it will be more and more that we can get the economy to be more inclusive, said Campbell, who was not involved in the research.
