Measuring Racialized Labor Markets

Awarded Scholars:
Zawadi Rucks-Ahidiana, University at Albany, State University of New York
Project Date:
Mar 2023
Award Amount:

The modern economy is highly segmented by class and race, but little research examines how class and race segmentation in employment operate together. Sociologist Zawadi Rucks-Ahidiana will create a new categorization system to better understand how race and class define employment opportunities across the United States. She will analyze data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Current Population Survey, the Census County Business Patterns, and the Census for her study.
