Intergenerational Poverty in Utah
Intergenerational poverty (IGP) occurs when two or more successive generations of a family continue in the cycle of poverty. For the purpose of this data, IGP individuals are those using public assistance for at least 12 months as an adult and as a child. Public assistance includes the receipt of one or more services including food stamps, child care subsidies, cash assistance or Medicaid/CHIP. Using this definition, IGP individuals are then matched across several state and local databases to provide county level profiles. This dashboard summarizes data related to the well-being of IGP individuals in Utah and its 29 counties. Various data points are available through tab navigation at the top of the visual. To change the county highlighted by the report, users may select a county in the drop-down on the left-side of the dashboard below the colored heading.
