The Suburbanization of Poverty in our Back Yard
The poor population in America’s suburbs is growing faster than anywhere else in the country, surging 64 percent in the past decade and growing at more than twice the rate of the urban poor population. In a newly released book, Confronting Suburban Poverty in America, Elizabeth Kneebone and Alan Berube of The Brookings Institution explore this new reality - suburbia is now home to more poor residents than central cities, and over a third of the nation’s total poor population.
