Ohio County Poverty Numbers

These are the six largest counties in Ohio and poverty numbers based on US Census American Community Survey data.  Interesting notes:

  • During this time period Cuyahoga County lost population and Franklin County became the most populous County in Ohio.
  • Lucas County/Toledo saw a sharp increase in those living in poverty following the downturn but have reduced that number with Dayton/Montgomery County retaking the fourth spot.
  • The high water mark for Ohio poverty was 2012 to 2013 and has been on the decline since then.
