Sandra Danziger (School of Social Work), Kristin Seefeldt (School of Social Work), and Sarah Burgard (Sociology) discuss poverty in southeast Michigan in the wake of the Great Recession that ended in 2009.
They present information from the first two waves of the Michigan Recession and Recovery Survey, a stratified random sample of households in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. They also highlight findings on employment, income, safety net program participation, material hardships, and health and mental health, particularly among low income households.
