Spatial Redistribution of Poverty through Migration of Poor People to Depressed Rural Communities.
Fitchen, Janet M.
Rural Sociology, v60 n2 p181-201 Sum 1995
Case study describes a depressed rural New York community that became a migration destination for urban poor people, causing dramatic increases in poverty rate, welfare rolls, and service needs. In-migrants were attracted by low-income housing and, because of their limited job skills, were not deterred by lack of jobs. Discusses community impacts and policy implications. (Author/SV)
