The Bureau blamed the 2.5 million increase in poverty stricken people on the whip saw effect of High inflation in the midst of recession together with widespread exhaustion of unemployment benefits last year. Despite an $818 increase in median family income last year to $13,720 a year inflation dragged the buying Power of that income Down to the lowest level in five years in 1975, the census Bureau said. The drop worked out to 2.6 per cent and followed a 3.5 per cent drop in 1974. Buying Power by that measure has now shrunk four of the last six years. For thie number of people in poverty it was the second increase in a Row and Only the third since the Bureau began keeping such statistics in 1959. The increases in 1974 and in 1970 were both about 1.3 million. The census Bureau said 25.9 million persons lived in families that were below the government defined poverty level of $5,500 for a nonfarm family of four. The poverty level was up due to inflation from $5,-038 in 1974. The number of people in poverty was the largest since the 27.8 million in 1967, when the poverty level was $3,410. The 1975 figure represented 12 per cent or nearly one out of every eight persons. That was up from 11.6 per cent the year before and was the highest essence rarely houb1gant the perfume .25 Al. Of.

The poverty income is set by computing the Cost of a Basic nutritionally adequate diet and multiplying that by three based on the government finding that poor people spend on third of their income on food.

The minimum Federal wage of $2.30 an hour represents $92 for a 40-hour week and the average payment to retired workers on social Security last year was $206 per month. The new figures appeared destined to provide More fuel for the presidential election contest. Democrat Jimmy Carter has made president Ford s handling of the Economy a key Issue for attack. And both candidates have offered tax reforms that would provide Relief to lower and moderate income taxpayers at the expense of upper bracket families. Ford has drawn the upper limit of Quot moderate Quot at $35,000.
