Poverty and Immigrant Families

A new report by Child Trends called "Children in Immigrant Families- The U.S. and 50 States: Economic Need Beyond the Official Poverty Measure" looks at
results from Census 2000 data to examine differences in the poverty rates between children in immigrant families and children in native-born families. The brief reports results for the official poverty measure, but also for two alternatives to the official measure.
For more information on the poverty measure and its alternatives.
