POVERTY LOST:

How much has the U.S. poverty rate declined? (Tyler Cowen on March 15, 2015, Marginal Revolution)

Official percent poor in 1964: 19.0% [...]

Adjusted percent poor in 2013: 4.8%

That is adapted from a Christopher Jencks review, "The War on Poverty: Was It Lost?", in the 2 April 2015 New York Review of Books.
