Poverty Maps From 1980 Compared to 2010


Poverty in the United States doesn't look like it did just a few decades ago. In many metro areas, it touches more people today than in 1980. The geography has shifted – as poverty now stretches well into the suburbs.

Note:
One dot represents 20 people with incomes below the poverty line (whites are in blue; blacks yellow; Hispanics green; and Asians red).
