Visualizing Regional Racial Disparities
Exploring economic disparities by race and ethnicity in U.S. metros
The Community Development Research team has produced an annual analysis of disparities by race and ethnicity on key economic measures since 2013. The findings of this research are largely consistent:

This interactive tool is an invitation to the region’s stakeholders to explore this metro-area data in new ways to inform strategies and solutions toward advancing equity and eliminating racial and ethnic disparities.
