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

Project Overview

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 focuses 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. More information about the initiative is available at http://www.stanford.edu/group/scspi. Findings from the initiative are expected to be released in early 2015.
