Description
 
In 2005, 37 million people, approx. 13% of the total population, lived below the poverty line, as defined by the Census Bureau. Poverty imposes costs on the nation in terms of both programmatic outlays & productivity losses that can affect the economy as a whole. To better understand the potential range of effects of poverty, the author examined: (1) what the economic research tells us about the relationships between poverty & adverse social conditions, such as poor health outcomes, crime, & labor force attachment; & (2) what links economic research has found between poverty & economic growth. Charts & tables.
