Poverty and Inequality Research Group

We build knowledge on how to reduce social inequality.

The Poverty and Inequality Group at Oregon State University conducts research on poverty measurement and analysis of social policies that affect poverty. Our work focuses on how the changing economic and social conditions interact with policies to affect the well-being of families and children. Our research generates new insights into how much poverty exists and how social policies shape the extent of poverty. The goal of our work is to build knowledge on how to reduce social inequality.
