In 2007 the average income for a FL household was over $50,000 and dropped to just over $46,000 by 2010 leaving 14% of the population living below poverty. Paying the monthly expenses can be nearly impossible when out of a job and living below poverty, and in turn leaves thousands declaring bankruptcy.
