Minding the Gap: An Assessment of Racial Disparity in Metropolitan Chicago

(2003)

In cooperation with the Human Relations Foundation of Chicago (HRF), CURL and the Jane Addams Hull House examined seven quality of life measurements: income, wealth and employment, education, housing, transportation, health, the lives of children and the criminal justice system.  This report, by examining these seven systems, not just one, creates a unique context for understanding both the complexity of these individual systems and the relationships between these systems.
