On November 9th The Boston Foundation released a new report entitled The Measure of Poverty: A Boston Indicators Project Special Report. The Boston Indicators Project’s report found Suffolk County to be among the most unequal counties in the nation due to the uneven impact of the regional knowledge economy on those with more and less education. It also noted the increasing stress on low-income households in a high-cost city and region. Today, almost three years after the onset of the Great Recession, those stresses are greater than ever.
The Boston Globe ran an article this morning in conjunction with the release of the report. The Globe article highlights growing inequity in the City of Boston and the concentration of that poverty in communities of color. Click here to read the full article.
