Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 15, 2019

The Census Bureau reported that California still has the highest level of functional poverty of any state, averaging 18.2% of its 40 million residents impoverished during the three preceding years. The number comes from a "supplemental" method of calculating poverty that includes a wider array of income measures than the long-standing official poverty rate and adjusts for the cost of living. California's official rate, 12.5%, is virtually identical to the national rate, but it soars to the top " or bottom " of the supplemental list largely due to its extraordinarily high cost of living. Our supplemental rate is five percentage points higher than the national rate and is nearly three times as high as Iowa's rate, 6.8%, the nation's lowest. It's also markedly higher than those of neighboring states such as Oregon (11.1%), Arizona (12.8%) and Nevada (13.7%), and arch-rival Texas (14.4%).

"Move out they say .... it will only make the poverty rate go higher ."

Very true because it's the rich and well to do who are moving, not the poor. The rich obviously take their money with them meaning fewer taxes in general and less money for social services.
