Census: Area closer to poverty

Poverty increased in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky between 1999 and 2005, while median incomes rose at less than the national average in all but two local counties, new Census Bureau estimates released Tuesday show.

It's another bad economic sign for the region, which has seen its jobless rate exceed the nation's since 2005.

Hamilton County finds money for jails, stadiums, apartments and rich condos for Reds owner Bob Castellini... And yet it finds nothing for job growth. The Enquirer should had asked Heimlich what he thought!
