Dr. Chhoda examines the rising poverty levels in the country – The number of poor people has grown by eight million since May, according to researchers at Columbia University, after falling by four million at the pandemic’s start thanks to the CARES Act.
Using a different definition of poverty, researchers from the University of Chicago and Notre Dame found that poverty has grown by six million people in the past three months, with circumstances worsening most for Black people and children.
Significantly, the studies differ on the most recent month: While the Columbia model shows an improvement in September, the Chicago and Notre Dame analysts found poverty continued to grow.
