About 1/5 of India's population is poor, and 62% of these poor people live in the 7 low income states in India. These states house 45% of the population, yet they have significantly poorer inhabitants than most other states. 80% of India's poor live in rural areas, where the poverty rate is 25%. Urban areas on the other hand, have a 14% poverty rate, which is only 6% in cities with populations over 1 million. 34% of poor people in rural areas get most of their income from farm-related labor, which is a low-paying job that requires workers to work many long hours. Non-poor urban people tend to have salaried jobs, with 44% of them recieving their main income this way. This shows that the gap between the poor and non-poor is massive in money made and also the amount of work done to earn that money. Non-poor people spend 9% less of their money on food, and 4% less on fuel and light. This allows them to spend 5% more than poor people on their education and health, and 8% more on other items, which can cause the cycle to repeat itself as people that are born poor don't have enough education to get a high-paying job. 45% of poor people end up illiterate, while 37% of non-poor end up having education from secondary school or above, allowing for them to get good jobs as the poor are left to do manual labor.
