The Geography of Poverty is a nice photojournalism tour of some backwater areas of America that are poor – in the economic sense. It’s only 1/4 complete, and left out the Midwest from their lens, but it contains this interactive map that breaks down poverty levels county-by-county. Type in a City or Town (not ZIP) to zoom into specific counties/regions.
It’s not surprising – but still shocking – how poor huge swaths of the South are compared to the upper Midwest and Northeast regions. Wow.
