(NBC News) – The poverty rate has declined for Hispanic, white and Asian children, but has remained steady for Black children, according to a new analysis released today by the Pew Research Center.

Overall, the number of American children living in poverty has declined since 2010 because of economic improvement, researchers found, but Black children remained four times as likely as white or Asian children to be living in poverty in 2013.

Among all children in the U.S., 14.7 million lived in poverty in 2013, down from 16.3 million in 2010. Poverty in 2013 was defined as a family of four (two children) living in a household with an annual income below $23,624.
