There are many categories of the poor. There are some people who are always poor and some who are usually poor( casual money), they have a little more money than the previous class. These two together are grouped as chronic poor. Another group is called the churning poor because they keep moving in and out of the poverty segment( small scale workers). There are a segment of people who are occasionally poor meaning they are rich most of the time but due to bad luck turn poor for awhile. They are also called transient poor. The last group is the never poor who are the non-poor.
