Poverty, Inequality, and Mobility among Hispanic Populations, 2012-2015

The Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in collaboration with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services awarded funding to the National Poverty Research Center at Stanford University — the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality — to support research on poverty and inequality among low-income Hispanic populations.

The research focused on areas such as social mobility, health and wellbeing, immigration, new generations, and trend analyses. The Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality awarded research grants related to these topic areas, and established a network of scholars with expertise in low-income Hispanic populations to mentor grantees. In 2015, findings from the initiative were published in Pathways, the Center’s magazine on poverty, inequality, and social policy, and are available here Visit disclaimer page .
