This chart shows the poverty rate based on CPI research series using current methods, meaning that money income is adjusted. The poverty rate decreased from 17.7% in 1966 to just 11.3% in 2000. However, the rate increased over the next decade to 15.1% in 2010. In 2011, the rate dropped to 15%, the first time it had dropped since 2006.
