The median household income for the area is $46,578 which is less than the national average of $55,322. Poverty is an issue for the city as it makes up 18.5% of the population. Additionally, Little Rock is faced with issues of crime as the rate of someone being a victim of a violent crime is 1 in 65 versus the state average of 1 in 182.  The leading cause of violent deaths in the area is suicide.

The area also ranks fourth nationally for its rate of divorce. In recent years, Arkansas residents saw an increase in divorce while the national rate declined to the 25.3% rate in 2015.
