CCC has created a Snapshot of NYC Children and Families in 2012, including an infographic and data table by borough, that shows key data elements from the 2012 United States Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.
At 31.4%, New York City’s child poverty rate is at its highest in over a decade. In 2012, the average New York City family with children made $6,203 less than the average family in 2008 (in inflation-adjusted dollars). Citywide, one third of families with children relied on SNAP (food stamps) to feed their families.
