This paper explores the changes in urban poverty concentration in U.S. cities in the 1980-2016 period. Since poverty is unevenly distributed between neighborhoods in a city, poverty concentration is measured by calculating the Gini index of neighborhood poverty headcount ratios. The change in the index is broken down into components along different dimensions, notably time and space

Abstract

This paper explores the changes in urban poverty concentration in U.S. cities in the 1980-2016 period. Since poverty is unevenly distributed between neighborhoods in a city, poverty concentration is measured by calculating the Gini index of neighborhood poverty headcount ratios. The change in the index is broken down into components along different dimensions, notably time and space
