Factoid of the Day Tuesday, October 21, 2014
Based on data from 2011, the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), a non-profit that works to increase financial security for low-income families, found that many U.S. households do not have access to enough cash to handle financial crisis situations in the event of loss of income, according to MSN.com. The CFED refers to it as “liquid asset poverty.” For a family of four in 2011, liquid asset poverty meant having less than $5,887 available to endure a three-month period without income. The CFED estimates that 43.5% of American households can’t meet this threshold. Here are the 10 states with the highest percentage of vulnerable households: 62.7% (Alabama); 62.0% (Mississippi); 55.8% (Georgia); 55.6% (Nevada); 52.0% (Kentucky); 51.9% (Arkansas); 51.5% (North Carolina); 50.0% (Tennessee); 49.9% (Louisiana); and 49.8% (Texas).
