About the Research Group
The Research Group on Equity in Health, Wealth and Civic Engagement brings together researchers from across Tufts University to discuss and investigate aspects of equity and inequity in the United States and the world.
A signature project so far is a national representative survey of Americans that we conducted in May-June 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Scholars from across Tufts contributed to designing and analyzing that survey. We intend to expand and refresh this dataset and also conduct other collaborative research projects.
The research has been funded by Tufts University Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) and the Research and Scholarship Strategic Plan (RSSP) as one of several such initiatives. Tufts’ Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life funded the data visualization tool that will be housed here.
