On September 20, 2016 from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. EDT, the Self-Sufficiency Research Clearinghouse (SSRC) hosted Multidimensional Poverty in America Webinar. During this free Webinar, SSRC Emerging Scholar Dr. Anupama Jacob focused on examining multidimensional poverty in America through the lens of race/ethnicity and potential policy implications. She began with a broad overview that explores the different ways that poverty is conceptualized and measured in the U.S. and internationally, and then will discussed how the multidimensional poverty index can be applied in the U.S. context. Dr. Luke Shaefer served as the Discussant, and Dr. Kristin Moore moderated the discussion. View additional Webinar materials.
