Poverty is a temporary situation for some persons, a persistent condition for others.

Thanks to the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), we can examine not only how many are poor at a point in time, but also how common poverty is on a long-term basis. We can also see how many move into and out of poverty over a period of time. Using a variety of measures, this Brief does each of these things.
