Windows on Urban Poverty
From the web site: "This web site documents the geographic dimension of poverty in the United States. Poverty is generally defined at the individual or family level as not having enough money to buy basic necessities. But because poor people tend to live in poor neighborhoods, poverty also has a spatial component. High-poverty neighborhoods can be dangerous and unhealthy places to live, and children growing up in such neighborhoods may lack positive role models and be exposed to crime, gangs, drugs, and other negative influences. The tendency of poor persons to be clustered in high-poverty neighborhoods is often referred to as the "concentration of poverty." The site has a section of interactive maps that show poverty concentrations in the USA."
