The Housing Assistance Council hosted a webinar presentation on June 28, 2012 on Mapping Poverty in the United States. A recording of this event is available at http://tinyurl.com/bue8bso.

More Americans are living in poverty today than at any other time since the Census Bureau began measuring its occurrence. Poverty is particularly acute in urban cities and rural communities, as well as in several distinct regions across the nation.

As a prelude to the 2012 edition of Taking Stock -- HAC’s decennial report on social, economic, and housing conditions in rural America -- we are releasing our newly updated poverty map. HAC’s map details county-level poverty data from 2010 Census figures, as well as information on historic, regional, and persistent poverty in the United States.

To download a copy or order a full size poster print of HAC's Poverty Map, go to www.ruralhome.org/poverty-map.
