Selecting papers from multiple disciplines, we review the place-based literature on poverty in the United States, focusing on those that employ a spatial approach. We touch upon how poverty is defined in the place-based literature, the differing scales used to analyse poverty and how it affects results, ways in which urban and rural poverty is delineated by researchers, theories used to analyse poverty within metropolitan areas, and regional patterns of poverty. We then explore how community development theory and practice might offer a framework for pursuing effective and evidence-based place-based poverty alleviation strategies and policy activities.
