As part of a 2018 study on Inclusive Recovery, the Urban Institute looked at the relationship between economic health, economic inclusion, and racial inclusion in 274 of the largest US cities since 1980. Through extensive data analysis and discussions with local leaders, they identified trends across cities, key lessons for how economic turnarounds can support inclusion, and the common building blocks of inclusive growth across different geographic contexts.
