Geography of Low-Income Children and Families

Koball, Heather; Douglas-Hall, Ayana

Where America's low-income children live is changing. Two-thirds of children in low-income families live in the West or the South, a substantial increase from a decade ago. These children typically face moves due to their parent's desire to build better lives by finding better housing, better jobs, or forming independent households.
