This report summarizes data from the 1990 and 2000 Census about the distribution of child and family poverty among Connecticut’s 169 cities and towns, and on changes in this distribution over the 1990s. The report also places its findings in the context of other recently-released national reports on child and family poverty, and concludes by highlighting the Connecticut self-sufficiency standard as a more appropriate tool for measuring the income-sufficiency of Connecticut families.
