* The "All Families" group includes one-parent, two-parent and other family types (e.g. children in foster care). As children in other families do not fall in the category of one or two-parent families, the total in "All Families" does not equal the sum of "One-Parent Families" and "Two-Parent Families".

** Decline in incidence of low income is expressed in percentage points.
