‘Half of U.S. Lives in Household Getting Benefits’

May 27, 2012 3:22 pm

We had spotted multiple stats on unemployment statistics and job statistics – we spotted this today:

“49.1%: Percent of the population that lives in a household where at least one member received some type of government benefit in the first quarter of 2011.

Cutting government spending is no easy task, and it’s made more complicated by recent Census Bureau data showing that nearly half of the people in the U.S. live in a household that receives at least one government benefit, and many likely received more than one.”
