That number is really misleading if it ISN'T fake.
I suspect it is just the average and there are places that aren't doing that bad - like around DC. lol
What about those of us in areas where it is 12, 14% or higher?
THey used to put maps up showing how it was in different places and how the high rates were spreading.
Funny, I never see those maps anymore.
I guess if one is looking at averages it is hard to really feel the gravity of the situations of those that far below the mean. I suspect that
statistics are what is keeping American politicians so out of touch. That, and having more 'important' masters than the people.
