The squalor that is California

One in five Californians live in poverty, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report.

Despite boasting one of the largest economies in the world, California has consistently topped national rankings of poverty.

Homeownership rates are at the lowest they’ve been since the 1940s, as increasing proportions of renters find themselves rent-burdened.

California is home to approximately 22 percent of the nation’s homeless population.
