% of Norwalk Households Struggling

ALICE is an acronym for Asset Limited, Income

Constrained, Employed – households that earn more

than the Federal Poverty Level but less than the basic

cost of living for the area (the ALICE Threshold).

Combined, the number of ALICE and poverty-level

households equals the total population struggling

to afford basic needs, which is 42% of households

in Norwalk.

total income compared with the size and composition of the household is below

the poverty threshold. The Census Bureau uses the federal government's official

definition of poverty to determine the poverty threshold.
