Inequality

Main content start

Why do some groups, regions, or countries fare better than others on economic dimensions such as income, wealth, health, education, and housing?  SIEPR scholars produce research that informs how policy may create or mitigate these inequities through housing and health care markets, schools and workplaces, criminal justice systems, and other areas where poverty and discrimination have created uneven opportunities.

Keywords: cross-regional variation, program evaluation, affirmative action, discrimination, poverty alleviation
