Reception to follow


The simple rationale for this new undertaking: To bring together the large group of social scientists at Stanford working on issues of inequality and economic opportunity to discuss — in a free, open, and spirited manner — the most pressing questions of our time and make all of our research the better for it.
We hope that you will join us in the very first of what will become a once-per-quarter event. Please come!

The leadoff event: A special discussion of Raj Chetty’s recent JAMA article: The Association Between Income and Life Expectancy in the United States, 2001-2014. Using 1.4 billion records on income and mortality, Chetty and his coauthors measure differences in life expectancy by income across geographic areas. They document large and growing gaps in life expectancy between the poorest and richest Americans and show that these differences vary greatly across areas within the United States, offering a new lens to study the determinants of disparities in health in the United States. Learn more about the project in this New York Times article and at the Health Inequality Project website.
