The following report contains the first-year research and findings of the NCLR Puerto Rican Young Men and Poverty Project. The Puerto Rican Young Men Project is a two-year community-based effort to understand and begin to explain the relationship between the experiences of Puerto Rican men aged 16-24 and the persistent poverty of Puerto Rican families. The report documents the current socioeconomic status of mainland Puerto Ricans and underscores the need to focus both policy attention and community-based efforts to help reduce Puerto Rican poverty.
