Place

“Place” refers to where people live, learn, and/or work, and/or the characteristics thereof. It is often used interchangeably with “geography” and “location” in the poverty studies arena. Common measures of place include urbanicity (urban, exurban, suburban, rural), neighborhood, census tract, and region.
