Putting Poverty in its Places
Barnes writes that while the poverty rate in big cities and suburbia gets the attention, "...at least as startling and certainly as important is the 21.8 percent poverty rate that occurs in rural cities, the principal municipalities that lie outside metropolitan areas. This is the highest poverty rate of all these major categories of places."
Barnes discusses new Census figures that show a significant rise in poverty in the U.S.
