University of Wisconsin Center for Demography and Ecology Working Paper: “Assessing the Spatial Concentration and Temporal Persistence of Poverty: Industrial Structure, Racial/Ethnic Composition, and the Complex Links to Poverty,” by Katherine J. Curtis, Perla E. Reyes, and Heather O’Connell (2012-06, June 2012, .pdf format, 29p.).

Abstract:

This study assesses the social-structural, spatial, and temporal dimensions of aggregate-level poverty in the US Upper Midwest between 1960 and 2000. Central focus is on the links between local-area poverty, industrial structure and racial/ethnic composition, and the spatial and temporal dimensions of the linkages. During the study period, the region underwent significant industrial restructuring and dramatic change in racial/ethnic concentration. Using newly developed statistical methods for spatial-temporal regression, we explore hypotheses related to the spatial and temporal dimensions of the complex relationship between poverty, industrial structure, and race/ethnicity. Our approach yields reliable and interpretable estimates for structural factors of interest as well as the spatial-temporal autocorrelation structure underlying the data. Results inform theory about the implications of industrial structure and racial/ethnic composition for the concentration and persistence of poverty and provide clear direction for future research.

US Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service Data Updates:

A. “Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) Data System” (updated, September 2012, Microsoft Excel format). “This data set provides time-series data on State and county-level estimates of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participation and benefit levels, combined with area estimates of total population, the number of persons in poverty, and selected socio-demographic characteristics of the population. All data, except program benefit amounts, are for a selected point in time each year; program benefit levels are total benefits issued over the course of a calendar year. The most recent year of full data availability is 2011 for State-level SNAP participation and benefits, 2009 for county-level SNAP participation, and 2009 for county-level SNAP benefits. More recent information for SNAP participation and benefits is available for selected counties and States.”

B. “U.S. Bioenergy Statistics” (updated September 2012, Microsoft Excel format). “Society has just begun to tap new renewable sources of energy from agriculture and forestlands on a commercial scale that impacts energy markets. Among these sources are biofuels, a small but expanding component of current fuel consumption in the U.S. transport sector.  In 2011, biofuels accounted for roughly 10.6 percent of total transport fuel consumption, or 14.8 billion gallons, up from 13.2 billion gallons the previous year.  Ethanol, made mostly from corn starch from kernels, is by far the most significant biofuel in the United States, accounting for 98 percent of all biofuel production in 2011.  Most of the remainder is biodiesel, which is made from vegetable oils (chiefly soy oil) as well as animal fats, waste oils, and greases.

The U.S. Bioenergy Statistics are a source of information on biofuels intended to present a picture of the renewable energy industry and its relationship to agriculture.  Where appropriate, data are presented in both a calendar year and the relevant marketing year timeframe to increase utility to feedstock-oriented users.  The statistics highlight the factors that influence the demand for agricultural feedstocks for biofuels production; for instance, numerous tables emphasize the relationship between energy and commodity markets.

ERS analysts track U.S. ethanol and biodiesel production, consumption, and trade. They also monitor and analyze U.S. bioenergy policy and events that affect the domestic and international biofuel and feedstock markets.”
