A Startling Resurgence of Poverty


Author(s):
Abstract:
A new report on poverty from the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources and Development found that nearly one in every five North Carolinians lives at or below the poverty level. The poverty rate is becoming worse due to a combination of factors, including the rise of divorce and separation, compounded by an economic recession and huge federal budget cutbacks.
