St. Cloud area poverty and youth 

The St. Cloud Times on Sunday published my response to their previous news item and editorial on the degree of poverty in the St. Cloud area. �You may find the data for this analysis here. The basic story is that there is a strong correlation between the number of 18-24 year olds in a city and its poverty rate, a point initially made by St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis and his office. I tried to confirm the relationship, and the evidence I had supported Kleis' argument.
