POVERTY Poverty rates are one measure used to gauge the health of regional economies because it is expected that as the economy grows, so will employment and income growth. Using federal poverty guidelines, Figure 7 illustrates that poverty rates in the past five years have generally edged downward throughout the region. Poverty in the 10-county region stands at 16.5% while the City of Clarksville’s overall poverty rate is 17.4%. Montgomery County has one of the lowest rates in the region at 13.4%. Christian County has the highest at 20.3% and Cheatham County has the lowest at 10.6%. Poverty is especially hurtful to children as they can be greatly impacted by hazardous or unhealthy living conditions, poor nutrition, and other risk factors associated with poverty. These risk factors may impact physical or emotional development, which may further reduce the acquisition of skills required for a career and a steady income. Roughly one in four persons under the age of 18 in the 10-county region is living in poverty. The region’s childhood poverty rate was approximately 24% in 2015. Montgomery County’s childhood poverty rate was 18% the same year—far less than the surrounding region. Houston County’s childhood poverty rate was the highest, at nearly 30% (see Figure 8).
