This article seeks to understand the degree to which economic clusters are associated with lower poverty rates in the United States. When controlling for other economic and demographic factors in a multivariate framework, their presence is associated with lower poverty rates. Moreover, regions with a higher share of employment in clusters, and with that employment dispersed across many industries within the same cluster, fare even better than those where employment is concentrated in a single industry. Furthermore, while there is evidence that particular clusters are associated with significantly altered poverty rates, not all of these associations are beneficial
