New Issue of Stanford’s Pathways Magazine

Stanford’s Center on Poverty and Inequality has published a new issue of Pathways, available here.  The contents from the website are below:



  • A Report on New Poverty and Inequality Research
    Christopher Wimer
    Eviction and its role as a poverty trigger; “intense schools” and their effects on disadvantaged youth; racial disparities in receipt of Unemployment Insurance; and other cutting-edge research.


  • The Great Decline in American Immigration?
    Douglas S. Massey
    Immigrants accounted for over a third of U.S. population growth in recent decades. But the Great Recession is bringing about a real turnaround in immigration dynamics.
  • The Crime Wave That Wasn’t
    Christopher Uggen
    An economic downturn is supposed to raise crime rates by reducing opportunities for licit employment and earnings. Why, then, have most types of crime continued to decline throughout the Great Recession?
  • Is the Recession Making Us Sick?
    Sarah Burgard
    So far, at least, there’s no evidence of a recession-induced health epidemic. But there are troubling developments in children’s health and in depression among young adults that could lead to problems down the road.
  • Sheltering the Storm: American Families in the Great Recession
    S. Philip Morgan, Erin Cumberworth, and Christopher Wimer
    The decision to have a baby, to form or end a union, and to return to the nest are all family behaviors that might be sensitive to economic downturns. Is the recession indeed changing the family? And are “red” and “blue” families reacting differently?


  • Can the Newly-Reelected Obama Save the American Public School?
    A conversation between William Julius Wilson and Sylvie Laurent
    Under the Obama administration, education policy has shifted in fundamental ways, yet the changes have remained largely under the radar. We’ve invited two preeminent scholars to a mini-debate on how these changes will play out.
