Poverty and Inequality

The Poverty and Inequality group is working to define and develop metrics and measurements of socioeconomic status and poverty in cities within the Pathways study. We are focused on understanding the ways that these measures co-vary with the urban built and natural environments, and  health. Using detailed data, the sociotechnical context, and engagement with policy partners, we aim to shape urban development and health policy to reduce inequalities in our partner cities.
