FED PYRAMID: A simple little diagram that depicts the structure of the Federal Reserve System, which is in the shape of triangle (hence the not totally accurate term "pyramid"), with a large base that comes to a peak. The base of the pyramid contains thousands of commercial banks, which rests on a foundation of the millions of people who make up the nonbank public. The middle of the pyramid includes 37 Federal Reserve Banks, including 12 District Banks and 25 Branch Banks. Resting at the top of the pyramid is the Board of Governors, with the Chairman at the very, very top. The top also has two notable offshoots -- the Federal Open Market Committee and the Federal Advisory Council.

POVERTY LINE: The official measure of the income needed by a family based on family size, location, and characteristics of the head of the household. The official U.S. poverty line is based on more of a relative poverty level rather than an absolute poverty level. For example, a family of two living in a rural area would need a different amount of money to stay above the official poverty line that would a family of four living in a city.
