Well-being Across America: More Unequal, More Insecure

December 17, 2019

On December 17, the New York Fed held an event to examine the latest community credit data analysis and explore how other data tools shed light on existing inequalities across communities in America.

The event explored how policy-influencers and practitioners are utilizing data to tackle some of the greatest inequalities our communities are facing, and how evidence-based data increases greater understanding of well-being of communities.

The discussion highlighted community indicators, community data tools, and examples of how data is informing decision making and policy action in communities.

Free copies of the New York Fed's latest community credit report, Unequal Access to Credit: The Hidden Impact of Credit Constraints, were provided.
