ABSTRACT

Outsized Impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic on Minority Communities   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "The current pandemic is highlighting--and perhaps worsening--many of the existing health and economic disparities that racial and ethnic minorities in the United States experience. These disparities are impacting and being impacted by people's health, living environment, access to nutrition, and educational resources, and they are driven largely by the type of job one holds. Understanding the cause and effects of these outcomes is critical to an informed and effective response. This information can help policymakers appropriately target assistance now and amend existing policies to better prepare for and prevent such outcomes in the future."
