Poverty in Rural America
In this Research Note, HAC examines Poverty in Rural America . The issue of poverty has many complexities, but it is much more than an abstract condition for the over 40 million Americans who face daily struggles with food security, access to health care, and lack of basic shelter. Poverty rates are on the rise and more Americans are living in poverty than at any other time since the Census Bureau began measuring its occurrence.
This research note includes analysis of:
-The face of poverty in rural America;
-Long-term poverty in rural America; and
-Rural poverty and vulnerable populations.
More rural poverty information can be found on HAC's "Poverty in the United States" map at www.ruralhome.org/poverty-map
