Here Are The 10 Poorest Cities In Texas

Although Texas generally offers a wonderful job market and low cost of living, many people still live at or under the poverty line in the Lone Star State. We have compiled a list of the poorest cities in Texas, adjusted for a population of 50,000 or more. I chose to use only mid-sized cities, because otherwise, the data represented towns that had a population of around 425 people or less. If you’d like to view those statistics, you can do so here.

I used¬†for my data, and searched for cities with the worst employment levels. However, keep in mind that all of these places have positive aspects beyond just a number on paper. The income of a community certainly doesn’t tell the whole story of what that town stands for. So, with that said, here are the 10 poorest cities in Texas, with a population of 50,000+.
