Kravitz-Wirtz looks at racial/ethnic disparities in exposure to air pollution over two decades


Nicole Kravitz-Wirtz and colleagues examined inequality in air pollution exposure using PSID data from 1990 to 2009 matched with temporal neighborhood measures of pollution and census data on metropolitan areas. They find blacks and Latinos are more likely to be exposed to higher levels of pollutants than whites, even after accounting for individual, household, and metropolitan factors.
