ALICE: A NEW LENS FOR FINANCIAL HARDSHIP

This effort provides a framework, language, and tools to measure and understand the struggles of the growing number of households in our communities that do not earn enough to afford basic necessities, a population called ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed).

 

Scroll down to view the percent of households in each state – and county – that lived below the ALICE Threshold in 2016. The ALICE Threshold is the bare-minimum economic survival level that is based on the local cost of living in each area.

 

Hover over the U.S. map below to view state data, click on any state to see a county-by-county analysis of financial instability, and scroll further to compare all states.

Comparison

This figure compares the percent of households living below the ALICE Threshold in each state. State averages are shown in gold. The range (high and low) for counties within each state is shown in black, with blue dots representing the average for each individual county. For example, in Alabama 43% of households are below the ALICE Threshold (gold), county averages range from 27% to 70% (black), and each blue dot represents the average for a county in Alabama.

 

This visual reiterates the variation that exists across states, and even more so within states.
