Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between U.S. metropolitan county employment growth and poverty. Differential job growth-poverty linkages are found across metropolitan size and type of county. Own-county employment growth significantly reduces central-county poverty in large metropolitan areas relative to suburban county poverty. Compared with larger metropolitan areas, broader metropolitan-wide job growth has more poverty reducing benefits in medium and smaller metropolitan areas, suggesting fewer metropolitan-wide job-accessibility constraints. The results suggest that targeted place-based efforts to spur job growth may help reduce poverty. Copyright (c) 2008 Blackwell Publishing.
