Persistent Poverty Story Map

Persistent Poverty Story Map
Published 2015

Neighborhoods with persistent poverty are marked by lack of access to services, deprivation, and struggle to make ends meet. Persistent poverty is defined as a high-poverty census tract (20 percent or more persons in poverty) that has had high poverty since 1970 through each of the decennial censuses—and more recently—in the American Community Survey. Alameda County has prepared a story map on ArcGIS Online highlighting these areas, the root causes, overlapping factors including race/ethnic plurality and unemployment, and a correlated health outcome, life expectancy. The work of the Alameda County Public Health Department is highlighted, as they work with community partners to make local policy changes aimed at improving population health by achieving education, economic, and environmental justice.
