10/20/14 - Five Facts Everyone Should Know About Poverty: a white paper by The California Budget Project

From Five Facts Everyone Should Know About Poverty by the California Budget Project:

By expanding and improving how our nation supports low-income families and individuals, public polices – from Social Security to food assistance to tax credits for working families – have played a key role in reducing poverty in the last half-century.
