    5% of my county. Pretty sure 4.9% all reside in one particular town too.

    Head down to the border counties and it shoots up anywhere from 21 to 43%.

    My Income says that I could easily qualify, but I own two pieces of Alaska, that do NOT touch, so THAT disqualifies Us from eligibility for the Program. So Momma and I just get along on our own, like we have for the last 40 years.....

    I figured it would be a stout figure, but dang. 19% with a 189% increase since 2000. Thought it would be lower than the entitlement mentality county next door, but it is actually higher. Guess that's what happens when manufacturing was the major industry for the county. That got decimated over the last 20 years by our kindly representatives on BOTH sides of the fence in Congress.

    About 9% where I am in LA County. Interestingly enough, the counties in the Long Valley, which is the most agricultural area of California, are mostly above 15%

    BTW, DW, where do you get such great shoes? :D

    Google Images.

    I just now realized there was a spot to show the % of increase further down the page. The 5% of today is a 124% increase from 2000.
