Evaluates the impact of several purported causes of poverty in N.Y. City. Using decennial census data for 1970-2000, the authors employ simulations and a decomposition framework to investigate the relationships between poverty and key demographic and economic changes in the city. They find that 2 demographic changes -- the growing percentage of the city’s black and Hispanic populations and the increasing share of residents living in female-headed families -- are clearly associated with the city’s rise in poverty from 1969 to 1979 and the continued high poverty rate from 1979 to 1999. But, the study finds that the rise in income inequality plays a larger role in the 1979-99 persistence of poverty than do demographic changes.
