10 States With The Lowest Poverty Rates

If you are wondering which states had the lowest poverty rates is 2008, you can find the results below. I corrected Census Bureau’s flawed methodology for income and poverty threshold calculations. It turned out that Oregon had the lowest poverty rates in the entire United States. If we were using flawed government estimates, North Dakota would have been topping the list. Here is the rest of the rankings:

1. Oregon

2. Wisconsin

3. Vermont

4. Oklahoma

5. Montana

6. New York

7. North Carolina

8. Delaware

9. Maryland
