Poverty in the United States: 2008 (ISBN: 1437934285)
By Thomas Gabe (Paperback, 19 pages, 2010, $15)

In 2008, 39.8 million people were counted as poor in the U.S. — an increase of 2.6 million persons from 2007, and nearly the largest number of persons counted as poor since 1960. The poverty rate was reported at 13.2%; this is up from 12.5% in 2007, and is the highest rate since 1997. The recent increase in poverty reflects the worsening of economic conditions since the onset of the economic recession in December 2007.
