About this title


Are those in poverty likely to remain there or can they move out of this situation without
help from other sources? Our understanding of those in or near poverty is primarily based upon
the analysis of either annual income or the income distribution from cross-sectional survey data.
It has been argued in the literature that using this type of data can be misleading when faced with
questions pertaining to transitions in and out of poverty. Studying the persistence of poverty
should focus on those characteristics of individuals and their families, in conjunction with labor
market situations, in order to provide an insight into why the situation continues.
Using the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) 1996 panel, it was possible
to investigate low-income dynamics and model family incomes for the years 1996-1999. This
paper provides a descriptive analysis that evaluates the low-income dynamics for families, their
exit and re-entry rates into low-income, as well as investigating family income and poverty
outcomes based upon a components-of-variance model that identifies permanent and transitory
factors and provides insight into low-income dynamics.
