Panelists analyzed a report on poverty released by the Census Bureau earlier in the day. They talked about the significance of the findings and their implications for families and policymakers. They noted that Census Bureau statistics revealed that poverty rates had remained unchanged despite rises in employment rates and economic growth, talked about the implications of the figures for children and families in poverty, and spoke about the effectiveness of poverty reduction programs. They also warned about the negative implications for unchanged poverty rates in a period of economic growth. After the discussion, the panelists took questions from members of the audience. close
