"- most poverty is of short duration, lasting only a year or less - most poverty comes about due to dramatic life changes - divorce, sudden unemployment, birth of child, serious illness - poverty is dynamic - in any given year about as many people move into poverty as move out - more poor people than official figures indicate – although 14% poor at any one time, 25% is or has been poor for at least 1 year - most children born in poverty are not poor as adults - about 1% of population lives in persistent poverty.
