The other thing - about poverty - is that sometimes people appear to be poor, but are not, and others don't appear to be poor, but are - maybe not destitute, but not very well off either. For example, I grew up in a poor household, but we had the "pong" game and a tv because someone gave them to us. We had nice clothes because richer family friends gave them to us, and my single mother really knew how to shop at second hand stores for the best quality clothes. Etc.
