The US Poverty Data can be used to determine where a group is located on the official poverty line in the United States. Developers can make a simple GET request to US Poverty Data using input variables such as income, social security, welfare, veterans, housing, energy, child support and more. The API will return poverty information that relates to the amount, rate, and share of impoverished people according to the input criteria. The API will also return race, sex, age, disability statistics that correspond to the input criteria as well. The API uses US government census data, and is open for any developer to integrate into a website or 3rd party app free of charge.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
