Think Out Loud

Inequality: By the Numbers

Pete Springer/OPB

Our first installment of our series on inequality focused on philosophy. On this show, we’ll hear from the head of the Population Research Center at Portland State University about what’s changed demographically over the years. Have neighborhoods become more stratified or more integrated? How are racial and ethnic minorities represented when looking at income distribution? And whatever the answers, what drives those numbers? And what impact might they have on our understanding of inequality?

We’ll crunch those numbers, but we also want to know: Have you moved to a more or less expensive neighborhood in the last several years? What drove your decision? How do you experience inequality?
