longitudinal census database (1970–2000) for the Atlanta metropolitan region,
"The results suggest that unemployment
and rental housing burden were the strongest determinants of levels of poverty and its change across race and subareas, indicating the importance of jobs and affordable rental housing to alleviating poverty and its concentration."
"studies have also shown that many central cities experienced population growth in the 1990s, reversing the historical trajectory of population decline in the previous several decades."
