Claudia Coulton discusses latest Census Bureau income, poverty statistics

Ohio income down, rates of poverty and uninsured unchanged, 2011 census figures show

The Plain Dealer: According to recent Census Bureau statistics, Ohio’s median household income declined by 5.7 percent over the previous year—a drop more than three times greater than the national average. “I know we’ve heard some economic news in Ohio that we’re seeing some job creation here, but what we haven’t quite heard about that news is whether the wages for those jobs are the same as the jobs that we’ve lost,” said Claudia Coulton, co-director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development.
