About No Poverty
The No Poverty section of VitalPTBO offers a limited snapshot of economic indicators for the greater Peterborough region.
It reveals that median household income in the region has risen by more than 50% since 2005. The proportion of low-income lone-parent families has declined by 17.3% since 2000. The elderly low-income population has more than doubled since 2000 and the number of children living in low-income families has fallen by 11%. The total low-income population fell by 4% in the 20 years from 2000 to 2020.
We do not have updated numbers reflecting the changes felt in our region as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We know, for example, that low-income people, women, gender diverse, racialized, and other marginalized people were negatively affected by lock-downs, school closures, and other restrictions more than other groups were.
Please get in contact with the Foundation if you have information to share, or if you would like to suggest a metric for inclusion.
