The Route 30 Poverty Corridor

From Hancock in Delaware County, on the Pennsylvania border, Route 30 travels north through six counties until it reaches the Canadian border. My initial research shows what I have always suspected, that these six counties form a poverty corridor that traverses the entire state from top to bottom. For now here is the median family income from the six counties from the U.S. Census Bureau for 2003, along with its ranking among the 62 counties of New York State.

County. Median Income. Ranking.
Schoharie 35,759 43
Hamilton $34,949 47
Fulton $34851 50
Montgomery $34,641 51
Delaware $32,742 59
Franklin $32, 531 60
