DETROIT (WKZO) -- Poverty rates in suburban areas across the country are on the rise with two Michigan communities ranked as having among the fastest growing suburban poverty rates in the nation.

According to the Brookings Institution in both Warren and Grand Rapids the poverty rate in 2010 was 12.1-percent. For both cities, that marks a 5.8-percent increase over the year 2000.

The Brookings Institution reports that nationwide the poverty rate in the suburbs is growing more than twice as fast as the poverty rate in urban areas.
