A National Report Card on Discrimination in America : the Role of Testing
Michael Fix, Margery Austin Turner
Urban Institute, 1999 - Discrimination in housing - 122 pages
This collection is based on the fact that employment, housing, and consumer rights and opportunities are often inextricably linked and mutually dependent. The papers explore aspects of creating a national report card on discrimination, assessing the role that testing and other social science methodologies might play in its formulation. The papers are: (1) "Measuring Racial and Ethnic Discrimination in America" (Michael Fix and Margery Austin Turner); (2) "Testing for Discrimination in Housing and Related Markets" (John Yinger); (3) "Adding Testing to the Nation's Portfolio of Information on Employment Discrimination" (Marc Bendick, Jr.); (4) "Racial Discrimination in 'Everyday' Commercial Transactions: What Do We Know, What Do We Need To Know, and How Can We Find Out?" (Peter Siegelman); (5) "Minority Business Development: Identification and Measurement of Discriminatory Barriers" (Timothy Bates); and (6) "The Future of Civil Rights Testing: Current Trends and New Directions" (Roderic V.O. Boggs). Each paper contains references. (SLD)
