The aim of this site is not to interpret, analyze or editorialize. Instead, it is to collect and display data that shows the extent of inequality across many measures in the U.S.
The authors of this site are not named because we’re not the focus. The data is the focus. And to answer the question of “why should we trust you and your data?” we provide footnoting and links throughout the site to make clear where the data comes from. This is not data we are generating on our own or taking from random blogs or unknown parties. We are aggregating and sharing data generated by high-quality primary sources, mostly government agencies.
