Best Chance Versus Poverty

The chances are good that a child in families struggling through poverty in Yuma has a one in ten chance of rising to be in the top five percent of income by the time they reach adulthood. The study by University of California Berkley says they looked at numbers from across the Southwest United States and that the Yuma area scored the highest. The Yuma Sun reports that other areas are not so fortunate. For example, children in poverty in the Gallup, New Mexico region only have a 4.8% chance of becoming financially stable in adulthood.
