ExtraFood’s Dr. Jon Haveman publishes new study on poverty in the Bay Area
April 08, 2015

ExtraFood Consulting Economist Jon Haveman's new study on poverty in the Bay Area highlights some startling facts about Marin County, including:

• 1 in 12 people live under the Federal Poverty Level, including 1,900 children under 6 years old;

• 1 in 5 can't make ends meet, even with government assistance;

• Nearly 1 in 3 people can't make ends meet on their own income;

• Just 33 of the average household incomes in Marin's top 5% would eliminate Marin's poverty gap.
