Texas income up, so is number of uninsured, poor people, Census data says

Texas household income increased slightly during the 2008-2009 period, according to new  U.S. Census data out Thursday. Median household income rose to $46,895 from $46,856 for the 2006-2007 period.

The state's percentage of uninsured people rose to 25.6 percent from 24.8 percent, and Texas remained No. 1 in uninsured, above New Mexico (22.6 percent), Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and California. Massachusetts had the least number of uninsured, at 5.1 percent.

The percentage of Texans living in poverty also increased, to 16.6 percent from 16.5 percent, the Census data showed. Texas had the fifth highest percentage of people in poverty, behind Mississippi (21.3 percent), Arizona, New Mexico, and the District of Columbia. New Hampshire had the least number of people in poverty, at 6.9 percent.

The batch of data released Thursday is only by two and three-year averages, and includes no local metropolitan data or state-by-state data on population characteristics, such as race. "The margins of error are so great, we really caution people against using them," Tom Edwards, an assistant branch chief for the Census, said.

The big batch of local data will come Sept. 28, when the Census releases its American Community Survey.

I also expect the state to raise the income tax and make tax exemptions for the ones with a heavy hit mortgage.

Those are super cute. I like you on Facebook.
