Poverty in Wisconsin and the United Statespeople-850097_1920

Lawrence Berger, MSW, PhD

This workshop will first discuss various conceptualizations and measures of poverty in the United States and how particular approaches thereto have implications for who is considered poor and why. It will then examine the role of multiple pieces of individual and family income packages, including earnings, informal (often family) assistance, and public benefit receipt, and how each relates to poverty under particular conceptualizations and measures. Finally, it will review recent findings from the Wisconsin Poverty Report and assess the roles of the economy, family, and social policy with respect to poverty in Wisconsin.
