POVERTY RATES RISING IN RURAL AREAS

Recent data shows that poverty in rural #Illinois is increasing at a faster rate than in urban areas. While poverty levels are still higher in urban cities, the number of people living in poverty in rural areas rose by 12 percent between 2010 and 2015, compared with a 5 percent increase in cities.
