Littman, Mark S.
Monthly Labor Review, v114 n3 p19-32 Mar 1991
The effect of changes in metropolitan area definition and poverty area boundaries was analyzed. Between 1972 and 1989, the poor became less concentrated in high poverty areas. However, the numbers of poor people and the national poverty rate in 1989 remained higher than in the 1970s. (SK)
