Closing the Gap: Metro-Nonmetro Differences in Long-Term Poverty among Blacks.
Adams, Terry K.; Duncan, Greg J.
Rural Development Perspectives, v7 n2 p2-6 Feb-May 1991
Long-term poverty rates among nonmetro Blacks have fallen dramatically since the early 1970s. Associated with that improvement are higher levels of education among young adults and smaller family size. Despite improvements, poverty levels are still much higher for Blacks than for Whites in both metro and nonmetro areas. (Author/KS)
