Cleveland Plain Dealer link

The Plain Dealer refers to and analyses data regarding "The Changing Face of Poverty," a Briefly Stated report by the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, at the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, at Case Western Reserve University.

The article, titled, "Three out of four Cleveland suburbs saw a dramatic increase in poverty in the last decade, and not one reported a significant decrease in the number of poor," begins, "A new report by researchers at Case Western Reserve University found that poverty rose from 2000 to 2010 in all 17 counties they examined, a testament to the 277,000 jobs that have been lost in the region since 2000, according to figures compiled by independent economic research analyst George Zeller"

The article goes on to put the report into local context, as well as adding its own contributions.
