Census Bureau: Virtual Workshop on Advancing Research on Race, Ethnicity and Inequality Scheduled

The U.S. Census Bureau is scheduled to hold a virtual workshop on Advancing Research on Race, Ethnicity and Inequality Nov. 14-15, 2023. This event will bring together new perspectives on how data resources can be better leveraged to both measure the dimensions of race and ethnicity within the U.S. population and to investigate how systemic inequalities by race/ethnicity can be identified within U.S. society.

The two-day event will feature opening remarks by Census Bureau Director, Robert Santos; a keynote address by Meeta Anand, senior program director for Census and Data Equity at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights; and social science research presentations and discussions.

Presented research will examine racial and ethnic inequalities in health, employment, education and housing (as well as issues related to theory on racial and ethnic identities), and measurement of race, ethnicity and different dimensions of social and economic experiences and inequalities. Presenting researchers are from academia, government and independent research centers.
