Faculty Member: Jan Knoedler
DP&S Liaison: Janine Glathar
Date: Summer 2017
Knoedler’s GIS-based project builds upon Raj Chetty’s (Harvard) project that considers income inequality among college students. Over the summer, students Autumn Patterson and Emily Tevebaugh worked with Professor Knoedler to combine Chetty’s data with ArcGIS data to undertake more detailed geographic study of income inequality.
