American Teens Receive a ‘D’ or ‘F’ for Teen Driving Safety

Teen drivers may think they know everything but they still have a lot to learn about how to drive safely, according to information released by the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (Responsibility.org) at the start of National Teen Driver Safety Week.

A majority of teens, 78 percent, report anticipating that the actions of other drivers will always be the hardest aspect of driving and 65 percent of teen drivers said they sometimes or every time find themselves in situations behind the wheel that they are not prepared for.

This survey was conducted at IKnowEverything Challenge events and tested teen driving safety knowledge among more than 2,000 high school students across the nation. See the full release to learn more about how teenagers drive.

After a generation of unprecedented economic growth, China faces a deep structural slowdown and broad uncertainty in the decade ahead, according to a new series of reports from the Conference Board.

Poverty Rate Declines, Number of Poor Unchanged, Based on Supplemental Measure of Poverty

The nation’s poverty rate was 15.5 percent in 2013, down from 16 percent in 2012, according to the supplemental poverty measure released on Oct. 16 by the U.S. Census Bureau. The 2013 rate was higher than the official measure of 14.5 percent, but similarly declined from the corresponding rate in 2012.

Meanwhile, 48.7 million were below the poverty line in 2013 according to the supplemental poverty measure, not statistically different from the number in 2012. In 2013, 45.3 million were poor using the official definition released last month in “Income and Poverty in the United States: 2013.”

These findings are contained in the Census Bureau report “The Supplemental Poverty Measure: 2013,” released with support from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and describing research showing different ways of measuring poverty in the U.S. See the full release to learn more.
