COVID-19 Equity Research Initiative

This project draws on data and research conducted during the COVID-19 pandemic by the UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge, in partnership with the UCLA Latino Policy & Politics Initiative, Ong & Associates, the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate, and the UCLA Luskin Institute on Inequality & Democracy. The resulting research briefs show that different communities across the Los Angeles area are disproportionately burdened by the epidemic and face housing insecurity, job displacement, and hardship to shelter-in-place. For more details, visit our news page. A full screen map can be accessed on the CNK Github. The UCLA maproom is made possible through the creative guidance of Manon Vergerio and an ongoing grant from the platform, Carto.
