This volume documents the continuing growth of concentrated poverty in central cities of the United States and examines what is known about its causes and effects. With careful analyses of policy implications and alternative solutions to the problem, it presents:

  • A statistical picture of people who live in areas of concentrated poverty.
  • An analysis of 80 persistently poor inner-city neighborhoods over a 10-year period.
  • Study results on the effects of growing up in a "bad" neighborhood.
  • An evaluation of how the suburbanization of jobs has affected opportunities for inner-city blacks.
  • A detailed examination of federal policies and programs on poverty.

Inner-City Poverty in the United States will be a valuable tool for policymakers, program administrators, researchers studying urban poverty issues, faculty, and students.
