Rural vs. Urban Household Poverty

This layer displays information about the difference between rural and urban childhood poverty across the United States. Data are based on census-tract level information from the 2008-12 American Community Survey. Census tracts are defined as urban or rural based on 2010 US Census Bureau definitions; tract level information is then aggregated to and displayed at the Public Use Microdata Area (PUMA) geographic level.
