University of Michigan experts are available to discuss the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2019 report on poverty and income statistics, to be released Sept. 15.
All of the experts are affiliated with U-M’s Poverty Solutions, an initiative that aims to prevent and alleviate poverty through action-based research that informs policymakers, community organizations, government entities and practitioners about what works in confronting poverty.
Kristin Seefeldt , associate professor of social work and public policy, and associate director of Poverty Solutions, explores how economic and policy changes affect the everyday lives of economically vulnerable families. She conducts research on family financial coping strategies, particularly the use of debt as a way to make ends meet.
