November’s Poverty Myth

"Poverty is only found in cities” – FALSE
In the United States, poverty is widely dispersed with respect to location.  Approximately 90% of those in poverty live outside of extremely poor urban neighborhoods.  Households in poverty can be found throughout a variety of urban and suburban landscapes, as well as in small towns and communities across rural America.  This dispersion of poverty has been increasing over the past 20 years, particularly within suburban areas.

There is also a widespread perception that most individuals in poverty are nonwhite.  According to the latest Census Bureau numbers, two thirds, or 66%, of those below the poverty line identified themselves as white.  This percentage has held steady over the past several decades.  Nevertheless, it is also true that if you are nonwhite, your risk of poverty is much higher than that for whites – read the full article from Confronting Poverty.
