On 6 August 2017 The Associated Press reported:
Persistent poverty shapes daily existence in this expanse of agricultural flatland that gave birth to the blues [the Mississippi Delta]. Jobs are scarce. Schools struggle for funding. Tens of thousands of families receive government food aid and health insurance. Fifty years ago, Democratic Senators Robert F. Kennedy of New York and Joe Clark of Pennsylvania toured the Delta and saw ramshackle houses and starving children. Although opportunities have improved in the past 50 years, the Delta remains one of the most deprived regions in the U.S. The national poverty rate is about 15 percent; it's 22 percent for Mississippi. In most Delta counties, it's 30 to 40 percent.
