Southwestern Pennsylvania is experiencing a shift of its more than 740,000 living in poverty and near poverty away from its urban core in Pittsburgh to the suburbs, similar to poverty shifts that are occurring in suburban areas across the country. Sixty-one percent of the
people living in poverty in Allegheny County and 79 percent
of those living in poverty in the entire Pittsburgh metropolitan statistical area reside in suburbs. Between 2002 and 2013, Allegheny County experienced a 3 percent rise in poverty occurring outside the City of Pittsburgh.

This report makes several recommendations in each of four areas - housing, transportation, economic inequality, and education - in order to increase awareness of this often-overlooked but growing problem and serve as a stepping-stone to future action.
