CIM to analyze data behind the headlines of “Memphis is the poorest metro in the nation” Nov. 7

What does the data say about Memphis as the "poorest metro in the nation?" What can data tell us about finding support for financial stability efforts in Memphis? CIM has some answers to these questions.

Local citizens and community organizations are curious about the headlines that were created recently when Census data revealed Memphis is the poorest metro of its size in America. Can this be true? If so, what can be done about it? The Community Issues Management data team will drill down through the data to the facts, with implications for action next month.
