In 2014, the poverty rate in Fairfax County was 6.6 percent, which equates to 74,210 people in Fairfax County living in poverty, compared to 64,851 people in 2013. Additionally, the number of people living in deep poverty in Fairfax County – with an income less than about $12,125 for a family of four – jumped to 33,838 in 2014.
