The concentration of poverty within metropolitan areas

Dionissi Aliprantis, Kyle Fee () and Nelson Oliver

Economic Commentary, 2013, issue Jan

Abstract: Not only has poverty recently increased in the United States, it has also become more concentrated. This Commentary documents changes in the concentration of poverty in metropolitan areas over the last decade. The analysis shows that the concentration of poverty tends to be highest in northern cities, and that wherever overall poverty or unemployment rates went up the most over the course of the decade, the concentration of poverty tended to increase there as well.
