USA TODAY IDENTIFIES FAYETTE COUNTY AS POOREST IN INDIANA

(Connersville, IN)--The USA Today recently identified the poorest county in each state.  And, for Indiana, it’s Fayette County.  The publication cites a median household income that’s only about 75% of the state average.  It says that nearly one in four residents is living in poverty, and that less than one in ten has a bachelor’s degree.  One in three Fayette County children was living in poverty between 2010 and 2013.
