Staff and faculty at the Poverty Center have been engaged in examining how and where systematic racism exists in administrative data. They have used a Toolkit developed by the Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) at the University of Pennsylvania as a guide to help them understand and examine where and how systematic racism exists, and to discuss ways to address these issues in their research.
