Title:Understanding recent changes in child poverty
Source:http://www.urban.org/UploadedPDF/311356_A71.pdf
Date:2006
Organization:Urban Institute
Short Description:Over the past 10 years, U.S. child poverty rates took two sharp turns: a major reduction from 1993 to 2000 followed by a slight hike from 2000 to 2004. Both shifts have been even more dramatic for black and Hispanic children. Such abrupt shifts offer an unusual opportunity to tease out what factors contribute to changes in child poverty.
Annotation:Over the past 10 years, U.S. child poverty rates took two sharp turns: a major reduction from 1993 to 2000 followed by a slight hike from 2000 to 2004. Both shifts have been even more dramatic for black and Hispanic children. Such abrupt shifts offer an unusual opportunity to tease out what factors contribute to changes in child poverty. Exploring the driving forces behind trends in child poverty offers insights on policy, as well as on the wellbeing of children, since child poverty is associated with many negative outcomes in later life—low earnings, reduced educational attainment, teenage childbearing, and physical and mental health problems.
