Take the Half in Ten interactive poverty quiz

How much do you really know about poverty?  How much does it cost to make ends meet in your community? How much does child poverty cost our economy every year? How many people did unemployment insurance keep out of poverty last year?  Test your knowledge of these and other questions with Half in Ten’s interactive poverty quiz.

With 43.6 million Americans living in poverty and millions more struggling to make ends meet, it is more important than ever to educate the public on the problem of poverty, debunk stereotypes, and make the case for proven policy solutions that can increase economic opportunity for all Americans.  Not only do we need to do everything we can to educate the public and policymakers; but we also need to build the grassroots movement to advance policies that create good jobs, promote economic security, strengthen families, and ultimately, cut poverty in half in ten years.

To that end, Half in Ten has developed this fun, interactive quiz designed to raise awareness of the problem, fight false notions, and illustrate policy solutions that work.  Test your knowledge and take the quiz here . Half in Ten says: “Please share our quiz with your networks…”
