The Projects section is a highlight of some of our research, past and current. The links on the left and below will take you to the following sections:

  • Exploring Economic Distress in N.C. features a deeper dive into poverty in communities across North Carolina.
  • The Foreclosure Project studies foreclosure and related consumer law issues in the state.
  • The High School Poverty Curriculum was developed by award-winning high school teacher, Brian McDonald. Six units cover historical, contemporary and practical topics related poverty, inequality and income.
  • The State of Low Wage Work in N.C. is an interactive website that examines the characteristics of low wage work, including demographic and industry-level analysis as well as policy discussion. Graphics can be shared and the underlying data downloaded. The website was created and designed by students in the master's program in city and regional planning at UNC-Chapel Hill with our collaboration.
  • The Other Projects page is where you can find other reports, such as the ones on poverty (PDF) and the racial wealth gap (PDF) commissioned by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation. Student research is also found on this page.
