In this edition of Brookings Data Now: governing by executive order; U.S. poverty rate; "opportunity" in Obama's SOTU; volume of U.S. exports; Egypt's economic situation.
Bill Clinton averaged 45 per year, and George W. Bush 36 per year.
The Census Bureau's Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM) calculates a 16 percent poverty rate when non-health government programs are counted in income.
He used the term "inequality" three times. Find out why social mobility "is a key clause of the American social contract."
This is a record; exports make up 13.2 percent of U.S. economic output.
Egypt's economic growth has slowed down while unemployment rises.
