The Census Bureau reported that of California’s roughly 40 million residents, an average of 18.2 percent have been impoverished during the three preceding years.

The number comes from a supplemental poverty method (SPM) report used by the Census Bureau to calculate poverty. It includes a wider array of income measures, and also adjusts for cost of living increases.

“Since the publication of the first official U.S. poverty estimates, researchers and policymakers have continued to discuss the best approach to measure income and poverty in the United States,” the Census Bureau states. “Beginning in 2011, the U.S. Census Bureau began publishing the Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM), which extends the official poverty measure by taking account of many of the government programs designed to assist low-income families and individuals that are not included in the official poverty measure.”

But the SPM doesn’t tell the whole story, the Public Policy Institute of California points out in its own calculations.

Using a similar methodology as the Census Bureau, the institute created a California Poverty Measure, which calculated the poverty rate at 17.8 percent and near-poverty rate at 18.5 percent.

Slightly more than 36 percent of California’s residents are at or near the poverty level, more than one third of its population.

“The high cost of housing has emerged as a threat to California’s future,” the Public Policy Institute of California says. “Many Californians see homelessness and housing costs as the state’s most important challenges, according to a 2019 statewide survey."
