The United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 1, No Poverty, aims to eradicate extreme poverty and reduce the proportion of people living below a country’s national poverty line by at least half. Globally, extreme poverty is defined as living on less than $1.90 per day. In the U.S., the poverty line for a single-person household is $12,760; however, over 1% of Americans qualify under the extreme poverty threshold.
