WalletHub report ranks Wisconsin No. 49 for economic racial equality
In a recent study to determine which states have the most racial equality in terms of employment and wealth, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across eight key metrics.
The data looks at the difference between white and Black Americans in areas such as annual income, unemployment rate, and homeownership rate.
Wisconsin, ranked 49th overall for economic racial equality, came in 50th for its median annual income gap, only ahead of the District of Columbia at 51.
Wisconsin also ranked 50th for its labor-force participation rate gap and poverty rate gap.
