Yesterday, I wrote about the ALICE report that was released last week by United Way of Florida. That work focused on the working poor, those who live above the federal poverty level but barely make ends meet. That report broke down the information by areas in the county. Forty percent of Pensacola households – 9,145 families – live below the ALICE level.

The areas with the largest percentages of households living below the ALICE level are Century 75%, Goulding 72% and West Pensacola 64%.
