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.
