poverty millenium report

Concentration of Poverty in the New Millennium, authored by TCF fellow and CURE director Paul A. Jargowsky, is the first to compare the 2000 census data with the 2007-11 American Community Survey (ACS), revealing the extent to which concentrated poverty has returned to, and in some ways exceeded, the previous peak level in 1990.

The Century Foundation released the report today.  To read the full report, please visit: Concentration_of_Poverty_in_the_New_Millennium.
