Description

The income gap in the United States continues to increase between white families and minority families such as African Americans and Hispanics. Despite an increase in funding for educational improvement to decrease this gap, there has been not noticeable improvement. The wealth gap can be attributed to a variety of differences between these races: initial opportunity, behavior finance, income, educational attainment, and asset and investment portfolio. This paper investigates specifically income differences between white and non-white families. I hypothesize that there will be significant differences in income between white and non-white families. I will use the control variables of education attainment, family size, and work experience, each by state.
