  The federal government puts the poverty line for a single person in Hawaii at a little more than $13,000 a year. Census figures show nearly 11% of the state’s population live below the poverty level, compared to roughly 15%at the national level. India’s poverty level is a different story, and one that’s changing. HPR’s Bill Dorman has more in today’s Asia Minute.

Bill Dorman has been the news director at Hawaiʻi Public Radio since 2011.
