The Poorest Counties in Every State in America
The Poorest County in Connecticut: Windham
If you're thinking that a county with an 11.8% poverty rate doesn't sound like a bad place to live, you're right. Windham's poverty rate is the lowest of any county on this list, but it is still the poorest county in Connecticut. To put this poverty rate in perspective, the U.S. poverty rate in 2010 was 15.3% and Windham's poverty rate is far below the national average. Not too shabby.
