Inequality data and analysis

Inequality is everywhere. It shows up in classrooms, in doctor's offices, in grocery stores, and in bank branches. 

Our cross-cutting analysis makes sure to uncover the interconnected nature of different inequalities. We look at how teen pregnancy is linked education, how incarceration is connected to healthcare, and how internet access is tied to income. To date, our analysis has helped state and local policymakers get the evidence that they need to help America's most vulnerable communities.  

We know that pulling data from government agency websites can be incredibly challenging. That's why we've made everything open source and freely available for download so that information is not the obstacle to success.
