Scott Allard Explains the Rise of Suburban Poverty
Posted: 6/13/2017 (CSDE in the News)
Scott Allard, CSDE Affiliate and UW Professor of Public Policy, was recently featured in a discussion about recent geographic trends in US poverty. Allard’s research shows a rise in suburban poverty across the United States, which stems partly from evaporation of the manufacturing jobs that have attracted many families there since the 1970s. The problem is compounded by the slow spread of programs designed to alleviate these hardships. You can read more about Allard’s findings and their potential impact on social policy below.
