MPBN Interviews Acheson About Newly Released Poverty Data

The Maine Public Broadcasting Network spoke with Ann Acheson, a researcher at the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center at the University of Maine, about the latest census data on Mainers living in poverty. Acheson said poverty data from the American Community Survey is important to pay attention to, but tends to underestimate the degree of economic hardship people are having. She also said in Maine, where there are more elderly people and fewer young wage earners, the climb out of the recession may be steeper than anticipated.
