About

THE REGION

North America is home to 461 million people, ranking fourth when it comes to population despite being the third largest continent in the world. The United States dominates the continent with over half of the total population.

 

 

 

 

 


THE FACTS

The U.S. poverty rate is the third worst among the developed nations tracked by the OECD. Kids in the U.S. experience higher poverty rates than most developed nations; 1 in 7 children will be born into poverty. Only Greece, Mexico, Israel and Turkey have higher child poverty rates than the U.S.

More than 40 million American families find themselves in a situation where housing consumes more than 30 percent of their income, forcing them to maintain a nearly impossible balance by making hard decisions about food, transportation and health.

Forty-one million Americans struggle with hunger, a number nearly equal to the 40.6 million officially living in poverty.
