Batten Expert Chats: "The Persistence of Air Pollution Disparities" with Jay Shimshack and Jonathan Colmer

Air pollution in the United States has decreased significantly over the last few decades. But poor, minority communities have remained the most polluted, according to a newly published study from two UVA professors and their co-authors. During the next installment of Batten Expert Chats, Batten’s Jay Shimshack and Jonathan Colmer of UVA’s Department of Economics will discuss and take questions on their research and on why it matters. How did they perform their analysis, and what can we learn about environmental inequality from their findings?
