Revealing Inequities

Friday, February 19, 2021

Researchers in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics found that during the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hispanic and low-income households were among the hardest hit by job disruptions. The survey project, which included 600 Arizona households, was supported by a CALS COVID-19 research grant and conducted between July 1 and Aug. 10. 

The results were compiled into a series of three briefs recently published on ASU's Food Policy and Environment Research Group website.

"We approached these briefs from the perspective of: What are people going to need to know right away?" said Ann Josephson, an assistant professor of applied econometrics in CALS.
