The Marietta Daily Journal – 12 6 percent of Cobb residents living in poverty

The number of individuals and families considered to be living in poverty in Cobb County has doubled since 2000, and that rate is growing more quickly than Atlanta’s urban core.

About 12.6 percent of Cobb’s population is living in poverty. That’s double the 6.1 percent from 2000.

During the same period, the city of Atlanta’s rate rose from 9.5 percent to 14.8 percent — a 5.3 percent increase, one percentage point less than the change seen in Cobb.
