A Resource: 13 Ways of Looking at Poverty

In 2009, one in seven Americans—43.6 million people—were poor. Who was poor and what that means is addressed in The Urban Institute fact sheet, 13 Ways of Looking at Poverty. The fact sheet presents a quick overview of research on poverty, including 13 key points on poverty's effects on immigration, health care, children, infants with depressed mothers, employment, assets, and neighborhoods. Each fact on the fact sheet is connected to an Urban Institute research report.
