Although the town has about the same percentage of population below the poverty line as does the county, the town has a disproportionate share of the county’s low-income residents living just above the poverty line, and a disproportionately small share of the county’s affluent households. This means that with changing socio-economic pressures, a larger portion of the town’s population is at risk of falling into poverty than is the case elsewhere in the county.
