Philly #1…in Percentage of Residents in Deep Poverty

Among major U.S. cities, has the highest percentage of its residents–12.9%, or 200,000 people–living in deep poverty. For a single person, that’s an annual salary of $5,700. For a family, $11,700. The results are based off data from the U.S. Census’s American Community Service, and are no surprise, considering the city’s worst-in-the-nation (“regular”) poverty rate of 28.4%. [Inquirer]
