INCREASING ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY: INCLUDES STATE-LEVEL ECONOMIC DATA [29 July 2014]
[full-text, 11 pages]
This report provides a snapshot of the economic situation of the nation’s African American population,
followed by a discussion of regional and state-level differences in several key indicators of economic wellbeing.
The report also highlights areas policymakers can target to support economic opportunity for
African Americans: expanding early childhood education, boosting participation in science, technology,
engineering and math (STEM) fields, strengthening the role of community colleges, helping families build
wealth, and revitalizing communities and fostering entrepreneurship. For each policy area, the report
includes an example of an initiative that is producing results at the local or regional level.
