Racially, the ‘Near Poor’ look like the poor
‘Near Poor’ - Not Quite in Poverty, but Still Struggling - NYTimes.com
: "Demographically, they look more like “The Brady Bunch” than “The Wire.” Half live in households headed by a married couple; 49 percent live in the suburbs. Nearly half are non-Hispanic white, 18 percent are black and 26 percent are Latino."
Racially, that's very close to what official poverty looks like in the US, though the percentage that's black is a bit higher and the percentage that's Latino is a bit lower.
