Inequality Workshop completed

The LIS Center at the CUNY Graduate Center hosted a one-week workshop on socio-economic inequalities. On Monday through Friday (June 1-5, 2015), the 50 participants, mostly PhD students and faculty from several NYC-based universities, attended lectures presented by 15 experts on inequality. The lecturers’ bios, and their assigned readings, are on the workshop website; the PPTs will be added later in June. On Saturday (June 6), 35 of the participants completed a one-day mini-workshop on how to use the LIS microdata.

Several of the workshop participants covered the events via social media, including live-tweets.

Stay tuned for announcements about next year’s workshop!

The “Inequality by the numbers” workshop was co-sponsored by The Century Foundation’s Bernard L. Schwartz Rediscovering Government Initiative, and the CUNY Graduate Center’s Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC).
