Webinar: Using the New Poverty Data

Together, the Coalition for Human Needs, the Community Action Partnership and the Children’s Leadership Council are hosting a webinar about the upcoming release of survey data from the Census Bureau. The data, which will be released on September 17 and 19, will highlight key information about poverty, income, health insurance, housing and employment throughout the nation. As key data points, the “Using the New Poverty Data” webinar will highlight how advocates can use this information to identify needs and challenges that exist in states, regions and communities.

Webinar presenters will include:

  • Jared Bernstein: What to Expect from the New Data. Bernstein is a Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and will help participants consider questions like, Is poverty likely to increase or decrease, and for whom? In the third year after the recession, was family income up or down? Are more people getting health insurance, or going without? 
  • Deborah Weinstein: Using the New Data. Weinstein is the Executive Director of the Coalition on Human Needs and will help participants understand quick and easy routes to the information you need. You’ll learn how to find fast answers to questions like: how many children are poor in my state or locality? How many families spend more than a third of their income on rent? How many are lifted out of poverty by tax credits, unemployment benefits, or SNAP? How many have not finished high school? Who has health insurance? 
  • Ellen Teller: Moderator. Teller is Director of Government Relations at the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). 

The webinar will take place on Tuesday, September 10th from 2pm-3:30pm ET and will include time for questions. Click here to register.
