A new study that maps economic mobility has shown when it comes to escaping poverty, where people live matters. While some Southern and Midwestern cities didn't fare well by the metrics used, residents of Northeastern cities such as Boston have an easier time moving up the ladder.
Boston still struggles with struggles areas of concentrated poverty, but Tiziana Dearing, Associate Professor of Macro Practice at Boston College Graduate School of Social Work, says the city has shifted in important ways.
"We are much better integrated, much more equal, much less overtly racist than we were 20 years ago — and than most of America thinks that we are now," Dearing says.
