What does black wealth look like in your county?
Black Wealth Indicators
The Black Wealth Indicators tool brings together county-level metrics from our Racial Wealth Equity Database to explore the state of Black wealth. In addition to direct measures of wealth, such as home values and household debt, the tool displays data on factors that can determine household earning power, such as educational attainment. The tool can offer a nuanced picture of where a county is succeeding while highlighting areas to target interventions in addressing racial wealth inequity compared to its peers.
