More Americans in Poverty After Great Recession

One analyst has called it the “selective recovery,” referring to the fact that while incomes are improving for many after the Great Recession of 2007-2009, the poor remain poor and there are more people heading into poverty. New data from the U.S. Census Bureau underscores this trend. See  Reuters article for a summary of the new Census report. Missouri is very much a part of this national picture. For more on a Missouri perspective, see this Kansas City Star  article from their business section, and some maps provided by the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
