About 18% of Cameron County residents are food insecure. That means that there are not adequate food supplies in the home at some time during the year for every household member to receive adequate nutrition.

Thirty-five percent of Cameron County residents live at or below the poverty line—$25,100 a year for a family of four.

Unemployment remains high in Cameron County, approximately 6.5% of those looking for jobs.
