Majority of them belonging under the age of five years and 18 to 24 years. Moreover, half of the poor women are single and have no children as compared to the other categories. While 54% of single women have no dependent children, about 26% have children depending on them. With respect to married women, 8% of them have no child dependency and 12% have dependency. From the data given in the bar chart, it is obvious that as people age the poverty level decreases. The highest number of poor people belong to under the age of 5 to 24 years group with most of them being girls and women.
