a PSC In The News reference, 2013

"The real measure of poverty: 1 out of 6 Americans" - NBC News. 11/06/2013.

A revised census poverty measure finds that 1 in 6 Americans is poor, amounting to about 50 million Americans. This piece summarizes Census statistics on recent demographic shifts in poverty and how policy changes are impacting safety net programs. Sheldon Danziger says persistently high poverty rates in the U.S. will not be reduced unless more Americans can benefit from the growing economy.
