Meeting the Challenge: The Dynamics of Poverty in Connecticut
AbstractThis Connecticut Poverty Report describes the change in the number and proportion of Connecticut residents living in poverty, and the increase in both number and percent between 1990 and 2010, based on Census Bureau reports. Demographic measures of age, race, family structure, education and job categories are tested statistically, for their alignment with poverty's growth over the twenty-year period. Policy recommendations acknowledge the current state administration's efforts to increase employment, and suggest ways to improve existing state programs.
