These briefs are short and informative analyses of our research
relating to poverty policies. Policy Briefs deliver our
cutting-edge research directly to policy makers, researchers, and
stakeholders in an accessible format.
Center podcasts are a great way to keep up with today’s poverty
research and public policy. We record most of our conference
presentations and talks by our seminar speakers. We also produce
exclusive content, such as our Poverty in Focus series, as well
as expert discussions on research.
Government agencies and others maintain a wealth of statistics
and data related to poverty. These links are a good place
to start for essential information on poverty measures at the
national, state, and local level, along with other fundamental
measures relating to poverty in the United States.
Many government agencies either administer programs that assist
low income families or maintain data relevant to poverty
researchers. These links provide access to relevant data,
program statistics and rules, and agency structure and contacts.
In addition to providing core funding for the UC Davis Center for
Poverty Research, the U.S. Department of Health and Human
Services currently sponsors two additional poverty research
centers in the United States (at the University of Wisconsin and
Stanford University). Across the country, several other
centers are actively engaged in poverty-related research.
