Supplemental Poverty Measure takes into account differences in cost of living between states (i.e. housing costs appreciably higher/lower than the national average) as well as taxes and the value of government assistance programs. All data are from the United States Census Bureau.

The lowest poverty rate was in New Hampshire, and the highest poverty rate was in American Samoa (the highest poverty rate among the states was in Mississippi).

Your list is not correct. The supplemental poverty measure, that is conducted by the US census bureau is considered the standard, albeit its not considered the official. The official poverty rates strictly go by income alone. The most recent actually corrected poverty list, using the supplemental poverty measure shows DC, followed by California at the top.

It opens in excel.

During the same period, California had the highest poverty rate, 20.6 percent, according to the censusí Supplemental Poverty Measure. That study does account for cost-of-living, including taxes, housing and medical costs, and is considered by researchers a more accurate reflection of poverty. For a two-adult, two-child family in California, the poverty threshold was an average of $30,000, depending on the region in the state, according to a 2014 analysis by Public Policy Institute of California.

Looking at state poverty rates, the second highest is Floridaís 19 percent, followed by New Yorkís and Louisianaís shared 17.9 percent rate. The national average is 15.1 percent using the supplemental measure.

"I think Assemblymember Mayesí comments are accurate," said Chris Hoene, executive director of the left-leaning California Budget Policy Center, which has closely studied poverty in the state

That entitlement stems from the mere coincidence of knowing the right people, or have had parents or grandparents who knew the right people. None of which ever worked for what they have, been inherited it. The truth is that 1% of the haves worked for what they have, the other 99% had it handed to them. Ironically, the 1% of those who did work for and earn it, are the ones who offer to pay more taxes to help society as a whole. The 99% that never worked a day in their lives are the ones who lobby political influence to not have to pay anything at all.
What this article is, is an attack on supposed White privilege. And not very well hidden.

I stand corrected. However:
Supplemental Poverty Measure takes into account differences in cost of living between states (i.e. housing costs appreciably higher/lower than the national average) as well as taxes and the value of government assistance programs.
That's an interesting statistic.

Btw, the wiki page has a Supplemental Poverty Measure list. It shows CA's poverty rate to be 23.8 percent in 2014. It's interactive.
