New York City Poverty Tracker Symposium & Data Training

May 18 9:30 am - 12:15 pm

The Center on Poverty and Social Policy will host an online symposium and data training featuring the Poverty Tracker, a unique longitudinal study of the dynamics of poverty and disadvantage in New York City. In 2012, we teamed up with Robin Hood to create a new data source that tracks multiple facets of wellbeing and disadvantage among individuals and families in the city. After over 10 years of the study, we have now collected a wealth of information on New Yorkers’ incomes, hardships, health, economic security, service needs, jobs, and many other topics.

Please join us online for a symposium to discuss the unique features of our data and highlights of a decade of research on the Poverty Tracker. This event is a collaboration between the Center on Poverty and Social Policy, Columbia Population Research Center, and Robin Hood. Full schedule HERE.
