Russell Sage Foundation to publish article on childhood poverty cures

Recent work by Luke Shaefer, of the University of Michigan School of Work, has been picked up by the New York Times

A forthcoming article for the Russell Sage Foundation,  by Shaefer and other experts on poverty and child well-being, proposes a new approach to dealing with childhood poverty in the United States: provide $250 a month for every child in the country.

NCRN supported Dr. Shaefer's implementation of the Census alternative poverty measures in the PSID, as well as other research on poverty.
