In this poster, we will use decennial census data from 1980, 1990, 2000, and the 2009 American Community Survey (ACS) five-year estimates to show the spatial distribution of persistently high child poverty. Additionally, we will overlay racial composition data to show where persistent child poverty is concentrated, and discuss other demographic correlates of persistent child poverty.
