LOW POVERTY INDEXSummary The Low Poverty Index captures the depth and intensity of poverty in a given neighborhood. The index uses both family poverty rates and public assistance receipt, in the form of cash-welfare, such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). The index is a linear combination of two vectors: the family poverty rate (pv) and the percentage of households receiving public assistance (pa).   Where means  and standard errors  are estimated over the national distribution. The poverty rate and public assistance for neighborhoods are determined at the census tract level. Interpretation Values are inverted and percentile ranked nationally. The resulting values range from 0 to 100. The higher the score, the less exposure to poverty in a neighborhood. Data Source: American Community Survey, 2006-2010
