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.
