National Asset Scorecard for Communities of Color

National Asset Scorecard for Communities of Color


Emily Horn (Public Policy, Global Health), Aasha Reddy (Economics), and Shanchao Wang (Masters Economics) spent ten weeks working with data from the National Asset Scorecard for Communities of Color (NASCC), an ongoing survey project that gathers information about asset and debt of households at a detailed racial and national origin level. They worked closely with faculty and researchers from the Samuel Dubois Cook Center for Social Equity.

Project Results

After conducting exploratory data analysis on the entire survey, the team did a focussed study of wealth disparities among different types of Asian communities. They are in the final stages of submitting a journal publication.
