Historical Trends in Poverty Using the Supplemental Poverty Measure

March 4, 2014 08:00 AM

Waging War on Poverty: Historical Trends in Poverty Using the Supplemental Poverty Measure, by Liana Fox, Irv Garfinkel, Neeraj Kaushal, Jane Waldfogel, and Christopher Wimer, Columbia University, was presented at the 2013 Fall Research Conference during the session Understanding the Effects of Social Policy on Poverty. It is a featured paper in APPAM's Online Paper Collection.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty, which is an appropriate time to look at historical trends in poverty and the role government has played in combating it. While much has been written on this topic, the authors provide the first estimates of historical trends in poverty and the role of government anti-poverty policies using an improved measure of poverty known as the supplemental poverty measure (SPM). The authors' analyses cover the period between 1967-2011.
