According to Kerry "1.7 million jobs lost since 2000; 1.4 million more people without health insurance; and 1.3 million more in poverty in the past year". So over the last 4 years the number of people in poverty increased by 0.4%. Less than one 1/2 of one percent. Since things are usually twice as bad for black America I will assume our poverty rate has increased by 1%. I question whether these numbers are statistically significant ?
