How much could the economy benefit from racial inclusion? How can we put tools and data into the hands of community leaders and policymakers who want to help build an equitable economy for all?
This research brief by PolicyLink and PERE estimates the economic boost of racial inclusion for the largest 150 regions, all 50 states, and the nation. One key finding was that the national economy stands to grow $2.1 trillion every year from racial equity.
As part of this research, PolicyLink and PERE also developed a new interactive website, the National Equity Atlas, to put this research and data to use. The site offers of visually compelling maps, charts, and other great data tools at the metro region, state, and national levels.
