Together Nelson has conducted research, resulting in this brief summary of poverty in Nelson.
This summary is based on a review of data ranging from 2015 to 2019, with some 2020/2021data. It will likely generate more questions than answers. However, it will hopefully stimulate the demand for more and better information as it becomes available. Nelson’s demographics, Nelson’s poverty indicators, data in six priority areas that align with Together BC’s poverty reduction strategy and the Social Determinants of Health help to inform our work at the community level.
