Understanding the Racial Wealth Gap

  • Haylards 406 3rd Ave Brooklyn, NY 11215 United States (map)

How do we collect data about populations using surveys? Have you wondered how social scientists measure wealth? We will explore the challenges in determining wealth among different racial and ethnic groups and how researchers developed a unique data set to capture asset and debt information in major metropolitan areas in the U.S.

Our speakers will explore the causes and consequences of persistent racial wealth disparities and policy solutions to the racial wealth gap that are now being included on the policy platforms of major Democratic presidential candidates.
