Congratulations, Phoenix!  You’re number 6 on the list of the cities with the fastest growing suburban poverty population.  What’s it feel like to be in the top 10?

According to a recent study:

Phoenix-Mesa-Glendale, Ariz.

> Pct. growth, suburban poor population: 134.2%
> Suburban poverty rate: 13.3% (34th highest)
> Suburban share of metro poor population: 37.9% (18th lowest)
> 10-yr. population change: 28.9% (18th highest)

Do you see that?  134.2%  Just wow.
