Q & A to follow
The Center on Race and Social Problems announces its next speaker series lecture featuring Dr. Kathryn Neckerman of Columbia University.

Drawing on the New York City Longitudinal Survey of Well-being, a panel survey of New Yorkers conducted at Columbia University, this talk will examine racial and ethnic differences in the experience of poverty. Across domains such as finance, health, and housing, this analysis focuses on the everyday costs and complications that make poverty both stressful and difficult to escape. This work complements research on structural factors such as education, assets, and neighborhood economic status to describe how poverty differs across race and ethnic lines.
