|When researching Lee County’s statistics as a whole, I learned poverty population is up to 16.1%. One of the contributing factors of the poverty percentage is unemployment rates, which is at 4.3% and has only increased during the current pandemic.
Another contributing factor to poverty is the number of residents with no Highschool diploma: 13.1%. Many employers require a high school diploma now to be considered for the position. The number of residents with fair or poor physical health is 13.5% and some of the percentage is due to lack of knowledge on the residents behalf.
