Between 2003 and 2012, the share of rural children living in poor families rose from 20.1% to 26.7%, its highest level since at least 1968. This report shows that 35% of this increase was due to declining average family income, 24% to demographically driven changes in the distribution, and 41% of the increase may be attributed to other changes in the distribution of income -- namely, faster-than-average income declines for families near the poverty line -- that cannot be explained by demographic shifts, and that occurred despite rising educational attainment. Between 2012 and 2014, average real income for urban and rural families with children grew by about 6%, close to their 2003 levels. However, the rise in income equality has not been reversed, and this growing inequality has limited the extent of poverty reduction in both urban and rural counties. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
