Poverty up significantly among Wisconsin single mothers

Four of every 10 single-mother households in Wisconsin with children under age 18 were living in poverty in 2013, according to the latest American Community Survey numbers released this week by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The state’s 42.5% figure is up from 39.4% in 2012, a change the Census Bureau flagged as statistically significant.
