A group of graduate students, primarily based at Stanford but including my Michigan colleague Bridget Lavelle, have just published a nice collection of slides containing 72 graphs about inequality in the United States. Topics covered include education, healthy, income and more. I imagine this could be a really useful resource for putting together undergraduate lectures, something like an inequality version of the fantastic St. Louis Fed database of indicators. The presentation isn’t quite as nice – you can’t easily generate your own tables, for example, or extract a graph to place inside your own slide show – but there’s tons of rich material.
