Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality/Russell Sage Foundation Website: “Recession Trends.” “The ongoing economic downturn is the worst of the postwar period. It bears some similarity, at least as regards origins, to the economic catastrophe of the Great Depression, and it may well have similarly far-reaching economic and social consequences. The purpose of the Recession Trends website, which is a collaboration between the Russell Sage Foundation and the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, is to monitor and report on such economic and social effects. We do so by offering two main resources:

Recession Briefs: We offer 16 up-to-date Recession Briefs, each written by the top authority in the field, that document the effects of the downturn on wealth, consumption, the labor market, housing, poverty, the safety net, health, education, crime, attitudes, and a variety of other key domains. If you want the latest and best evidence on the effects of the downturn, click here to explore our Recession Briefs.

Graphing Utility:
Have you ever wondered where to go to get the best and latest trend data on the social effects of the downturn? It’s here! We offer a simple-to-use graphing utility that provides customizable graphs on the key trends in each of our 16 domains. It’s the most comprehensive compilation of trend data available on the social consequences of the downturn. Click here to check out our Graphing Utility.”
